Hunt rules himself out of taking the Bafana job

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says he currently has no ambitions of coaching Bafana Bafana as Stuart Baxter is doing a solid job in charge.

Baxter guided Bafana to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations where they were beaten late in the contest by Nigeria.

Nonetheless, there has been speculation about the Englishman's future as the performances in the group stages were seemingly not the best.

South Africa lost twice to Ivory Coast and Morocco while picking up a scrappy win over Namibia.

In addition, Baxter is yet to reveal whether he will continue in the job though indications seem to suggest he will.

With that said, Hunt doesn't want the position either way. He told reporters: "I fully respect Stuart Baxter and his whole team, they got to the quarterfinal after not qualifying for such a long time, they've done well and have something to build on, I will support them whichever way they go.

"I really don't want to talk about that, that's not really my area, there's someone in place there. I'm too young to be a national team coach [laughs]."
