The 56-year-old has also won the 2012 Nedbank Cup, 2016 MTN 8 title and his latest trophy came in the form of the 2017 Telkom Knockout Cup.

“Gavin Hunt has been appointed as the new head coach of Kaizer Chiefs,” the club announced.

“The Cape Town-born mentor will start his job immediately and his contract will see him take charge of Amakhosi’s first team for the next three seasons.

“Hunt brings a wealth of experience since he joined professional football in 1981. The former defender spent most of his playing career at Hellenic FC, for 13 years. He went straight into coaching after hanging up his boots in 1994.

“Hunt has an impressive CV and a glittering coaching career, including his first accolade as a coach, having promoted Seven Stars from the First Division Coastal Stream to the elite league.

“His other accolades include winning the PSL Coach of the Season on five occasions. He has also won the league championship four times with two different teams and has several domestic cup competitions under his belt.”
