    #2 Micho breaks his duck

    When Sredojevic moved to Africa in 2002 to join Villa SC of Uganda, very few people knew anything about him. He silenced critics by winning three consecutive league titles between 2002 and 2004. 

    He also won the Ugandan Cup in 2002 as well as the Cecafa Clubs Cup in 2003.

    #3 More success for Sredojevic

    Sredojevic then moved to Ethiopia to join Saint-George SA. There, he won four Ethiopian Premier League titles between 2005 and 2010. 

    He also won the Ethiopian Super Cup twice in 2005 and 2009.

    #4 Success follows Micho to Sudan

    The Serbian mentor signed for Al-Hilal Omdurman of Sudan, but he never spent too many seasons there. 

    However, success still followed him as he won two major titles - Sudan Premier League and Sudan Cup in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

    #5 Sredojevic continues to break boundaries

    Apart from helping Uganda qualify for their first Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals in 38 years, Sredojevic won the Cecafa Cup with the Ugandans in 2015.

    #6 Hunt wins his first major trophy

    In 2004, Gavin Hunt lifted his first trophy as a professional coach when he guided Moroka Swallows to the Absa Cup glory. 

    At the time, Hunt had already earned the plaudits from many football fans around the country for his stellar job at Black Leopards and Seven Stars among other teams. 

    At the time he won his first trophy, Hunt was in his 10th year as a professional coach.  

  7. #7 Hunt wins three PSL titles

    Hunt replaced Pitso Mosimane at SuperSport United in the mid-2000s, but it was between 2008 and 2010 when the Tshwane giants really sent a statement of intent to their rivals by winning three PSL titles during that period. 

    These were the first three PSL titles of his coaching career before he left for Bidvest Wits in 2013.

    #8 Hunt's last trophy at SuperSport United

    In 2012, Hunt won his last trophy with SuperSport United when he guided them to the Nedbank Cup title before leaving the club for Bidvest Wits

    #9 Hunt equals Igesund's record

    Hunt equalled Gordon Igesund's record for four PSL titles as a coach when Bidvest Wits made history by winning their first league title since the team's formation. 

    It was an achievement which many didn't see coming but certainly a start of many trophies to come for the Brammfontein-based outfit.

    #10 Wits continue upward trend under Hunt

    After winning his fourth PSL title in 2017, Hunt guided the Students to two Cup titles - the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout Cup at the expense of Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic respectively. 

    It was this time, that more people began to respect Wits as a team, especially after suffering a lot in the previous years under different managers.
