Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says as a coach you don’t need to be given mandates in terms of winning trophies because coaching is self-pressure.
Hunt was speaking to the media in Johannesburg on Thursday at the PSL’s offices ahead of their meeting against SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout Quarter-final tomorrow.
The ex-Amatsantsantsa A Pitori mentor says it’s all about the desire to win as a coach and he believes it’s time to win something with the Clever Boys.
“Look, it’s about self-pressure, I want to do well because last season we should’ve won the league,” said Hunt.
“We failed to beat or get points from the bottom teams and to win the league you’ve got to do it.
“We played in the final of the Nedbank Cup but ended up losing, so yeah it takes time.”
The three-time league winner with SuperSport United in 2008, 2009 and 2010 added that seeing players coming in and leaving means he will take time to challenge for a trophy.
“We’ve brought in a lot of guys and had some leaving the club, however, we need to compete – for example in the league we moved from 3rd to 7th.
“With that in mind, I see the game versus SuperSport United as a tough game for sure,” concluded Hunt.
This battle for a semi-final spot gets underway at 15:30 and the venue is Bidvest Wits’ home ground, Bidvest Stadium.
