Bidvest Wits FC appoints Gavin Hunt as Head Coach with effect from the new season

Bidvest Wits FC Chief Executive Officer, Jose Ferreira, said: "We are delighted to have been able to secure the services of Gavin Hunt as our head coach. He has an impressive CV not only with Supersport United but with every other club he has coached prior to that. We have signed a long term contract with him and we believe that, in line with our long term vision for the club, he is the right coach to lead the process that we have embarked on to transform our team into a consistently competitive force in South African football."

Jose Ferreira further added: “We also want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Clive Barker for the remarkable work he has done with our team over the last 5 months of the season. Whilst we seldom found ourselves outside the top 8 in the first half of the season, it was with Clive at the helm, in the second half of the season, that we saw the quality of our players come through and where we imposed ourselves on the field of play. Clive will always be remembered as an important part of our initial efforts to turn things around at our club.”

Yah, he did capitalised on hard work by Pitso as he won those 3 lig cups. Pitso generation left and everything fell apart. Let's see him building for himself at Wits.

Still don't understand what went wrong at SSU this season!

Gavin the contribution that you made to our beloved pretoria side will always be appreciated.
It is with great pride that i inform you that you will always have a home in pretoria.

It is my hope that one day you will return to one of the pretoria sides and hopefully when you do the football capital of mzansi will have another side in the PSL. (A.K.A UNITED FC/GA-RANKUWA UTD)

We will miss you!

PTA stand UP!
