SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt sympathises with under-fire Molefi Ntseki

SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt admits it is ‘very sad’ that Molefi Ntseki has once again been the subject of the Kaizer Chiefs fans frustrations.

Ntseki had to be escorted from the field at the Mbombela Stadium last month as Amakhosi went down 1-0 to TS Galaxy.

He was again under threat from his own supporters as Chiefs suffered a 1-0 defeat to Matsatsantsa on Wednesday night.

Terrence Dzvukamanja scored the only goal at the Peter Mokaba Stadium for a narrow win, to leave Ntseki’s side in eighth place on the DStv Premiership standings with just eight points from seven games – and SuperSport in third with 13 points.

Speaking after the game, Hunt said on SuperSport: “I’ve been there (before) I’ve been at (Moroka) Swallows in the boot of a car so I understand.

“It’s not really for me to comment but it’s not the right way to handle things. We need to be more understanding of situations.

“Maybe they will win on Saturday then what happens? You never know in football but I think we can handle these things in other ways, it’s sad, very sad.”

Chiefs next face Mamelodi Sundowns in the second leg of their MTN8 semi-final with the game tied at 1-1 from the first match.
