Steve Komphela cooled down emotional Gavin Hunt after shared an emotional video Instagram reacting to durimg a match.

Gavin had been known for his passion, fun, drama, and commitment to football when he was at the touchline. Unlike other coaches who sit down watching the game, Gavin usually stands and tries to cheer his team.

This kind of reaction was the same in the video he shared when on the touchline during SuperSport United. Gavin is a man of perfection, and emotions usually get him whenever his team does not perform as he drilled them.

This time, he could not hold himself, throwing himself to the ground and hitting things around him. After sharing the video, he also realised how emotional he was and laughed.

“Football ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ” he captioned the video laughing.

Steve Komphela and Gavin Hunt are top names in South African football. They have been in the game for decades, both as players and as coaches poking fun at each other.

Indeed, even though Hunt shared his emotional video, Komphela is also known for his demands for high standards. In the video, something in the game frustrated Gavin, and he became so emotional that he failed to control his feelings.

His fellow coach, Steve, said that he still wanted him and he should cool down and control his emotions. “Easy BOSS. We still need you. Take care of that heart๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚,” Steve said.


Soon after hanging his boots playing for Cape Town Spurs while on loan from Hellenic, Hunt went straight into coaching. He started his coaching career at Seven Stars, where he stayed for three years and joined his former club Hellenic.

After impressing at Hellenic, Hunt attracted interest from top clubs and signed for Black Leopards and later Moroka Swallows. After his stay at Swallows, he was among the best coaches in the country and coached giant clubs like Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United.

Conversely, his fellow coach Komphela last played at Canakkale Dardanelspor, he went into coaching at Mining Rangers. He saw a slower rise in coaching until the national team was under 20 and 23, and he coached Bafana Bafana as a caretaker.

After that, he coached top teams like Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns.
