"CATCH me if you can," three-time Absa Premiership winning coach Gavin Hunt yesterday told rival coaches.

"CATCH me if you can," three-time Absa Premiership winning coach Gavin Hunt yesterday told rival coaches.

Hunt warned that the desire for more championships was burning even stronger after his hat-trick of titles with SuperSport United.

He also took a swipe at his title rivals, saying most of them are unrealistic about their chances of winning the league.

"I think people should be realistic. You hear clubs saying they'll win the league but most of them haven't got a snowball's chance of doing it. The problem is that there is no identity," he said. "The hardest thing in football is to play it simple.

"There are some teams in the country I can't even watch because they pass the ball around a lot yet don't create enough chances."

Hunt has been strongly linked with the Bafana Bafana coaching job after the World Cup, but he insists that coaches should not canvass for the job.

"Coaches for a top job like that should be head- hunted. Safa should pick the best candidate for the job," Hunt said.

In response to claims that his success with United is the result of Pitso Mosimane's hard work before taking up the job as Bafana assistant coach, he said: "That is completely offside. If that was the case, why haven't Swallows won the league even though I left them in a good position?"

He also defended his style of play, which has been labelled as boring by his detractors, and admitted that the criticism gets to him sometimes. "It does bug me when people say we play boring football. I think we play good football and we score a lot of goals, so the criticism is unfair."

l Simphiwe Tshabalala and Lebohang Mokoena scored for Bafana Bafana who defeated Boavista 2-0 in a friendly match at the Granja Comary yesterday.
