He, however, began his career with Seven Stars before going on to manage the likes Hellenic and Moroka Swallows.

And as his side gets their pre-season preparations underway, Hunt reiterated he was 'looking forward to the challenge' ahead of him, despite suggestions he won't last long.

Hunt is club owner Chippa Mpengesi's 30th coach in nine years and the Chilli Boys ended the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season in 15th place, only securing their survival via the promotion/relegation play-offs.
