Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has been linked with taking over the Bafana Bafana job from current mentor Shakes Mashaba.
However his agent has come out and informed Goal.com that this is not true.
“As far as I am concerned Gavin hasn’t received any formal communication from Safa regarding the position nor have we, who are his agency,” Michael Hughes of MSC Sports told Goal.com
“Gavin is still contracted to Bidvest Wits so that is the position he is in at the moment.”
The agent hinted that if Safa were to contact Hunt, then his client could be interested, as you’d expect with nearly all coaches working in the PSL.
“I think Gavin is very happy at Bidvest Wits, he believes he can still achieve a lot at the club and still wants to. Nevertheless the national team job is…anyone that is mentioned is normally flattered. I can’t say for certain what are Gavin’s interest levels,” Hughes told Goal.
“Currently, he is contracted to Bidvest Wits and he is happy at the club.”
