Hunt: You need to change your ways


Returning SuperSport United head coach Gavin Hunt admits he's had to adapt his coaching style to keep up with the ever-changing demands of football.

Hunt steered Matsatsantsa to three consecutive top-flight league titles and a host of cup victories from 2007 to 2010 before claiming yet another league win as Bidvest Wits boss in 2017.

His subsequent spells with Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United were less successful, but a return to SuperSport means that Hunt now has the opportunity to rebuild, with a quality young squad inherited from former boss Kaitano Tembo.

Speaking after his appointment, Hunt said in the Citizen: "There is an old saying that goes, 'the older you get, the better you used to think you are'. You need to change your ways otherwise you'll have no chance.

"I am more challenged to find ways to improve the team because times have changed.

"Players' mentality has changed and the youngsters of today are totally different compared to five years ago.

"There is social media and all these types of things now. Are the players hard and tough like we used to have? I don't know."
