Kaizers Chiefs defender – Ramahlwe Mphahlele has shared his views concerning the new Amakhosi coach – Gavin Hunt
Mphahlele spoke to Chiefs website and explained that Hunt is well familiar with South African soccer and he is a verified winner.
“Gavin Hunt has been in the game for long,” said Mphahlele.
“He is very precise in what he wants,” he continued. “We concentrate on what to do when we have the ball, what to do when we don’t have the ball and how to break down opponents.”
Mphahlele further said after Amakhosi side failed to clinch the title last season, they’ve decided to do the right thing by signing Gavin Hunt.
“It was an agonizing ending to the season, we all agree on that. Now, we just want to play and make things right.”
Mphahlele said Hunt is on a different level to previous Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp.
“He’s different. He pushes us hard and clearly wants the best out of everyone. One thing is clear, if you don’t work hard, you won’t be part of the match day team.”
“The coach clearly loves working with young players,” he added. “I am seeing it now at Chiefs as well. It’s interesting to see how he’s pushing them. The youngsters will need to step up and show that they are ready to compete for a first team starting position. I think what we need is a mixture of senior players and youngsters.”
