‘Hunt’s Derby Inexperience Cost Us’ – Chiefs’ Fans


Did Gavin Hunt underestimate the experience required by players to compete in the Soweto Derby? Listen to the Fans as they have their say by clicking on the podcast player below!

Much has already been said about Kaizer Chiefs’ 3-0 defeat to rivals Orlando Pirates in the first leg of the MTN8 Semi-final, but no discussion on results could ever be complete with the Fans having their say. On this episode of the Fan Reaction Show, the Amakhosi faithful air their grievances over the result.

One common theme among the discussion is Gavin Hunt’s choice to field younger players over some of the Glamour Boys’ more experienced players, with one fan saying ‘When it comes to [the] Derby, you can’t rest the senior players! It’s good to play youngsters, but you need to combine with the senior players. Players like Parker, Katsansde… they know how to play a Derby. The Derby is something else, it’s very difficult to play in. The Derby was too big for the [youngsters], they don’t have the experience for it.’
