SuperSport United make HUGE Gavin Hunt decision

SuperSport United have made a HUGE decision on the future of Gavin Hunt whose contract expired on 30 June.

In a short statement released on Tuesday, Matsatsantsa confirmed that Hunt has signed a new two-year deal with them.

There were fears among SuperSport United fans that Hunt may be lost to the club just two seasons after his return.

And those fears stemmed from reports that the four-time league winner was offered to Sekhukhune United.

However, it later emerged that Hunt rejected the chance to leave SuperSport United for Sekhukhune as he wanted to continue with his job at the Tshwane side.

Now, Hunt will be at SuperSport United at least until June 2026 to try and win silverware for them.

He remains the only coach to win the league with SuperSport United, and not once but three times in a row between 2008 and 2010.

Hunt is yet to win any piece of silverware since his return to the club two seasons ago but SuperSport United have become competitive again under his watch.



Meanwhile, Hunt’s backroom staff is also staying put for the next two seasons, as confirmed by SuperSport United.

And they are Andre Arendse who is Hunt’s assistant as well as Grant Johnson who serves as Matsatsantsa’s goalkeeper coach.

Both Arendse and Johnson have been with SuperSport United for years, and when Hunt returned, he never had a problem working with them.

Now, their working relationship is set to continue for two more seasons at SuperSport United provided the results are satisfactory to the management.
