Hunt dismisses reports of player dissent


The Cape Town-born mentor adds that he is confident that fortunes of Matsatsantsa will soon turn and that there will be smiles in the team again.

Hunt was responding to questions from Kick Off regarding talk of the players’ unhappiness.

Hunt said he had read reports about dissent at the club, however, as far as he was concerned he had only great commitment from his squad and that the results had not been forthcoming because luck had deserted the team.

_quote“I read about those reports. They are absolute nonsense. I am still happy in the team and I haven’t experienced any problems of unhappiness among the players. We played well against Chiefs on Sunday, but luck was not on our side as we created lots of chances but failed to capitalize on them.

“You must remember that we have new players in the team and sometimes it takes a long time to build a strong team. I am happy with the commitment shown by the players and I am confident that things will get better soon.”

Matsatsantsa striker, Katlego Mashego has also dismissed reports that the players are no longer happy of Hunt remaining as team coach.

“This is the first time I hear about that. I haven’t heard any players in the team complaining about Hunt. It’s true that we are not getting good results at the moment, but the coach is not the only one to blame for that, but also the players.

“We are working hard to bounce back to our winning ways and I am confident that will happen soon,” he says.
