Hunt: No approach for Bafana job

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says he has never been approached for the Bafana Bafana coaching role, saying he is happy in Braamfontein.

The outspoken manager spoke to the Sowetan website as his name remains linked with the vacant coaching position after Shakes Mashaba was fired in December last year.

However, Hunt says the fact that Mashaba has been fired doesn't change his view regarding coaching the national side.

Hunt is still chasing his first Absa Premiership title with the Clever Boys after leading them to MTN8 Cup glory last year.

“No it doesn’t change anything‚ because no-one’s approached me‚ no-one’s spoken to me – it’s all media talk,” said Hunt to the Sowetan.

“They media throw the names around – and some of the names baffle me. So I don’t read anything into that.

“The timing with that job is key. And right now they (SAFA) don’t seem to know what’s going on. So my focus is here (at Wits).

“And I’m saying this on the record – the timing was right when we weren’t going to qualify (for AFCON 2017) and there were two games left.

“But it was left and now in the world market who are you going to get? Most guys around the world have got jobs.

“But no-one has spoken to me officially‚ now or in July. It was all just media talk. And that’s the honest truth.”

Ex-Bafana coach Carlos Queiroz, Eric Tinkler and Hunt are some of the names heavily linked with the job.
