Denis Onyango backs Gavin Hunt to win trophies at Kaizer Chiefs

Hunt's arrival in Naturena has marked a new dawn for Chiefs, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary following a fifth straight baron season.

The four-time league winner's arrival has been met with plenty of excitement and anticipation from the Amakhosi faithful, as they look forward to his pedigree bringing silverware back to the club.

Onyango, who previously worked under Hunt at SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits, believes the 56-year-old has all the qualities to succeed, despite the bigger expectations that come with leading with one of the PSL giants.

"He's a fantastic coach, I believe it will be a new chapter for him. Probably managing a bigger team than the other few he has previously managed, but football is the same and the mentality still remains that he will drive them to winning trophies," Onyango told the media.

"He's done that with SuperSport and with Wits, we know the quality he has as a coach and going into a bigger team, the anticipation and expectation on him is big, but he's done it before and I believe he has the ability as a person and a coach.

"Of course, being driven by the size of the team will be something else, but good luck to him. It's always good to have a competitive coach like Gavin in the league.

"When you look at the games between Wits and Sundowns, it was always competitive and he drives his players to give their best, so it will be good for the league and football in general."
