Chippa appoints Hunt as head coach

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Former Kaizer Chiefs coach, Gavin Hunt, is the new coach for the Gqeberha-based PSL side, Chippa United.

The coaching job at Chippa was vacant after Lehlohonolo Seema moved on.

Seema was a stand-in coach at the club after Vladislav Heric was fired in May.

The Chippa United coaching position remains a hot seat and has seen more than 12 changes during the past five years.

The Chilli Boys survived relegation last season through the play offs. They ended 15th on the PSL log.

Hunt says he will be looking to stabilise the team.

“People can see this as……well you know the history of Chippa……a very chequered history, people coming and going. I saw it as a project. We had a long discussion about things, I am here long-term but the most important thing is to get the team competitive and a bit more stable and obviously to challenge in terms of being more competitive and more consistency in the team,” he says.

Hunt has signed a two-year contract with the club.

Football supporters have reacted with mixed feelings on social media over the news.
