Gavin Hunt: SuperSport United manager says he still needs more windows to build a winning side

The tactician believes Matsatsansa’s team is light in all areas and will need to be further strengthened in the future to start competing for silverware.

SuperSport United manager Gavin Hunt believes he still needs a few more transfer windows to build a winning squad despite signing seven new players.

Matsatsansa has added Siphesihle Ndlovu and Benson Shilongo to his squad, with the two joining Thulani Hlatshwayo, Grant Margeman, Ricardo Goss, Thabang Sibanyoni and Patrick Maswanganyi as the club’s newest signings, but Hunt believes his squad are still a long way off. finished and their problems cannot be solved in a window.

“We have a team that needs some windows, you have to work on it, and you can tell me anything about football, it’s not about training, it’s about windows,” Hunt said. , reported by iDiski Times.

“That’s football, so you can do things [challenge for silverware]so we need another window for sure then we can trade.

“We have two [Ndlovu and Shilongo] now, it will help us enormously, but yes, it is like that. If you can’t do that, you should try to get a few here and there.

“But the team I have now, I’m happy, the youngsters, we have a very good group and they will go far but sometimes they need a bit of time.

“Over time you can produce and they’ll do better, I don’t have to tell you, when I was here [the first time], how many young players have been produced here? You have to think about it. »

Hunt’s comments may not sit well with some of Matsatsansa’s supporters given that Namibian international striker Shilongo has joined the club with a huge reputation, having spent the last four years in Egypt and Israel since joining the club. left South Africa where he played for the now defunct Platinum Stars. .

Former Young Player of the Season Ndlovu, meanwhile, signed a one-year deal with Orlando Pirates after struggling to get playing time with the Buccaneers.

The two featured in SuperSport’s 2-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in a PSL match on Saturday, the club’s third defeat of the season, which ended their three-game winning streak. Hunt thinks the duo still needs time to level up.

“When you get players at the last minute, that’s going to happen, isn’t it? You go anywhere in the world and get a player now, he won’t be in any condition because of the situation,” he added.

“We have to try to get them fitter. I didn’t really want to play it [Ndlovu] but we stuck it because we’re short there [in midfield]sometimes we play a full-back there but we are fine, everything will be fine.

SuperSport are seventh on the table with 11 points, eight behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after winning three, losing as many and drawing two games.
