Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says he currently has no offers for a new coaching post as he slammed Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) for not talking to him.

The four-time Premier Soccer League (PSL) winner will be out of a job next season when Wits cease to exist.

The PSL franchise was sold to the owners of TTM and will be relocated to Limpopo.

While a number of players are already being farmed out to more established top-flight side, Hunt will also not be retained - seemingly because his salary is too high.

But the former SuperSport head coach said TTM did not even talk to him about their future plans.

Speaking to FARPost, Hunt said: "I have nothing on the table at the moment. It's also embarrassing what TTM said about me because they didn't even talk to me.

"I don't like it when my name gets thrown around and gets linked with clubs that have coaches. Obviously, I would still like to be coaching next season."

Reflecting on the departure of some of the club's players, Hunt added: "I don't want to put it in public about the moves some of my players have made. But players have to think about their livelihoods.

"But I spoke to every player and wished them well. When you have a guy that's 28 or 29, obviously he needs to look after his future and those types of things. But he needs to play football as well."
