The 54-year-old retired South African star believes the experienced tactician should not have joined the Chilli Boys
Hunt accepted the Chilli Boys’ offer after being sacked by Kaizer Chiefs towards the end of the season.
‘Now you tell me as we speak here that Gavin Hunt has signed [for Chippa United]”It’s actually a joke,” Williams said. News24.
‘If Hunt had signed, I would probably want to expose him and say that I would not think he would take the job because it tells me how high his quality is. Is he desperate at first? And I have to say it that way. It’s not about friends or what, because coaches like it [Jose] Mourinho does not just go to any club, and that’s just an example I make. ‘
The retired striker believes Hunt has achieved a lot and the move from Chippa United is a downgrade for him: ‘He must not forget, he has won the league four times, so he is a very recognized coach in this country. I’m not saying he’s going down, ‘Williams added.
“I would not have thought in his situation that he could be desperate now. After he was fired from Kaizer Chiefs, I told him what I think he should do.
“I told him to stop. He earned enough money. Chiefs paid him the money they owed him. I told him he had to travel overseas, go look at some of these coaches, to England, to Scotland. and ask them if you can watch and learn from their training sessions.
“And if you came back, you would now forget how Chiefs treated you, and you would have learned a lot about football abroad.”
Since Chilli Boys joined the Premier Soccer League club in 2012, they have had 19 coaches and Willaims feels Hunt could be sacked almost immediately by club owner Siviwe Mpengesi.
“We all know the history of Chippa United because the chairman believes he has to win that league every year. He has some bad players, but he also has some good players,” Willaims concluded.
“However, he can not compete with Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, even Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United; they have players of excellent quality.”
