Dikwena’s Cavin Johnson set to replace Gavin Hunt at SuperSport United

SuperSport United are believed to be after the services of Dikwena coach Cavin Johnson should Gavin Hunt leave for Bidvest Wits next season

All may be well in the SuperSport United camp at the moment, but a search for the new head coach has began although nothing is going to be revealed until at least the end of May.

Matsatsantsa are believed to be preparing for life without their coach Gavin Hunt who is set to join Bidvest Wits at the beginning of next season.

United PRO David Skosana confirmed to Goal that the formal announcement about the future of Gavin Hunt will be made public after their Nedbank Cup final on Saturday, but he didn’t want to comment on whether the three-time PSL winning coach will still be at SuperSport United next season.

“Nothing about the future of coach Gavin Hunt has been discussed, and that is because we still have one more game to play on Saturday,” Skosana told Goal.

“I cannot comment on whether he will be with us next season. We can only tell after the Nedbank Cup final or end of the month,” he said.

Gavin Hunt will resume negotiations with Bidvest Wits next week for a possible move, after the negotiations were earlier suspended as Hunt believed that it will destabilize the team.

It is believed that Matsatsantsa have earmarked the current Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson as Hunt’s successor should the former Swallows and Black Leopards mentor move to Johannesburg.

However, the Platinum Stars coach has commented on the reports and he told Goal that he is not aware of any movement away from Dikwena, let alone to SuperSport United in the near future.

“I am not aware of such reports. I am currently busy with Platinum Stars trials for next season. I am still the coach here (at Platinum Stars) and I don’t think it will change anytime soon, not to SuperSport United,” Johnson told Goal.
