Reacting to the post, Pitso Mosimane, who had numerous touchline battles with Hunt during their time coaching in the PSL, wrote on social media: “@gavinhunt12 I have struggled to understand that you are yet to get attached to a team after winning so many League and Cup trophies, plus CAF Champions League experience. Waiting to hear from you about your recent trip at Man City.”

“Missing our Friday Nights nail biting big games and we both came out of those battles exhausted, with fresh open wounds,” he added.

According to the GOAL website, Hunt travelled to England to join Premier League champions Manchester City for a two-week training lesson in February this year.

Gavin Hunt was tipped with a return to SuperSport United

He was tipped for a return to Matsatsantsa this year and was also linked to the coaching vacancy at Tanzanian giants Simba SC, but neither materialised.

Hunt was reported not to be in a hurry to find a new job, but as his latest posts suggests, he could be ready for a return to the dugout.

Gavin Hunt, now 57, had a hugely successful six-year stint with SuperSport United between 2007 and 2013 that yielded three PSL titles and the Nedbank Cup while being crowned Coach of the Year on three occasions, before moving to Bidvest Wits where he spent seven years, winning the league, Telkom Knockout and MTN8.

He had a 10 month stint with Kaizer Chiefs before he left to join Chippa United where he spent six months and left after he was put on ‘precautionary suspension’ following the team’s poor run of results.

Hunt began his coaching career at Seven Stars in 1995 and went on to manage Hellenic (for whom he played over 300 matches during his career), Black Leopards and Moroka Swallows before joining SuperSport United.
