SuperSport United coach has questioned why his team lets players join city rivals Mamelodi Sundowns to the point that Matsatsantsa are jokingly referred to as The Brazilians’ academy.
He said to The Citizen:
“There are players who are never going to play there.
It is very strange because they are crosstown rivals and I don’t think you would really see Manchester City selling a player to Manchester United, but you see that in South Africa.
In my first time at SuperSport we sold the whole team and now there are a few players gone so it is what it is.”
Hunt also said that Bafana Ba Style’s spending power has weakened South African football.
The two teams are going to collide in an MTN 8 Wafa Wafa quarterfinal clash on Sunday evening in what is easily the match of the round.
Five days later, the two teams will then meet in a DStv Premiership encounter where one team will be gloating while the other licks its wounds.
There is no telling if this was mind games by Hunt, but his comments will definitely cause a stir.
In the off-season, Sundowns acquired the services of Bafana Bafana captain Ronwen Williams and the troublesome Sipho Mbule from United.
