SuperSport United head coach Gavin Hunt says he was heartbroken for being fired at Kaizer Chiefs because he felt he could bring the glory days back.
Hunt went on to lament his short stay at Chiefs and says it hurt him the most because it was the first time he got fired in 27 years of coaching.
“It’s very difficult, you’re a coach for 27 years, you’ve never been fired and all of a sudden you get fired twice in six months and then you say I’m to blame and you go from there,” he carried on.
“Ja, I mean you all know what happened at those clubs, first club (Hunt made a handcuffed gesture), you’ve got no chance and it’s sad because I really felt that I would win there but it doesn’t work like that.
“But here, we’re back at SuperSport, we’ll give it a go, we need to build again and we’ve got good youth there, there’s a good crop underneath the starting eleven but it needs a little bit of time,” he said.
“As I said, we need to nurture it, I think the biggest thing is you’ve got to try win games that you shouldn’t win, you understand what I’m saying.
“And try to turn losses into draws and those type of things and if you can do that, then you’ll get consistency and you’ll have a good team. But it takes time,” he added.
