Gavin Hunt cut a frustrated figure after his side’s 3-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns. Here are the best snippets of what he had to say.
“The score-line doesn’t look good obviously. If you look at the total game, we had a few good opportunities ourselves you know so we got to defend better,” Hunt told SuperSport TV.
“We know where the problems are, we know the problems from day one. But it is what it is… but we ended up with six academy boys on the field so you got to start building, you got to start somewhere.
“You’re playing against a team that’s invested very heavily in their squad as you can see their bench, so we were up against it. So we have to dust ourselves off and go again,” Hunt said.
The extra substitutions rule was also brought up. He said: “It will help the teams with better squads of players that’s for sure, but that’s not an excuse at all. It is what is with that. I did think we created some good opportunities, but as I said defensively wise it (left) a lot to be desired. There’s a lot I want to say but I rather leave it for behind closed doors.
“It’s not really I want to say (laughs) I know…it is what is. We have to knuckle down and see what we got and take it from there,” he closed.
