Following the release of Amakhosi, who struggled in the league last season, Strategy has taken a new job at the Gaekbera Club.
Gavin Hunt’s appointment as head coach of Premier Soccer League team Chipa United has sparked a mixed reaction from the online community.
The 56-year-old strategist landed a job at Chipa United after being fired by Kaiser Chief after a bad season in the PSL. Although the Glamor Boys finished eighth in the local league, Hunt surprisingly managed to take them to the semi-finals of the Kiev Kiev Champions League.
Strategy has been appointed to replace Lelhonolo Seema, who left after helping the club stay in the top flight through the playoffs.
Hunt is the longest-serving manager in the South African League and has won numerous individual and team awards, but some fans believe he will not be long in his new workstation.
This is because the Pepper Boys owner, Chepa Manpessi, is known for his impatience with low-performing coaches and is not afraid to replace his team manager.
Hunt’s major achievements came in 2008, 2009 and 2010 when he helped Superport United win the PSL title for three consecutive seasons.
He also won the PSL Trophy with the Boldweight Wits – his latest league success – as well as the 2016/17 season, as well as the smart boys from the Telecom Knockout Cup and the MTN 8 Trophy.
His first major trophy was the 2004 Abbas Cup with the Moroccan Soylus.
