Former Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt will ‘join’ Manchester City soon after the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in February 2022.
In an interview with Daily Sun, Hunt confirmed that he has been invited by a friend to spend two weeks at Man City.
Hunt said the purpose of his visit to Man City is to check the environment and see if there are coaching opportunities for him abroad.
But apart from possible opportunities, Hunt wants to learn as much as possible about coaching.
“I will check out the environment and see if there are opportunities. I got an invitation from a friend, who works at the club,” said Hunt.
“For now, I am enjoying my role as an analyst at SuperSport, but I am available to take on new job offers.”
Hunt further revealed that getting coaching jobs in South Africa is a challenge because it’s all about who you know than what one can actually do.
The 57-year-old mentor has had promises here and there but nothing concrete before revealing that he’s ready to take any offer that comes his way.
“In SA, it’s about who you know and not about your coaching experience and qualifications,” said Hunt.
“I am ready for my next coaching challenge. I had good jobs and believe they will come again.
“I am still looking, and nothing is available at the moment. I am willing to take any job that comes my way,” added Hunt.
Hunt recently parted ways with Chippa United, and he was linked with possible coaching jobs at Swallows FC and Orlando Pirates.
However, nothing came out of those reports as Swallows appointed Dylan Kerr and Pirates stuck with Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids as their coaches.
