Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt was delighted to end the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season on a positive note ahead of an uncertain future for both him and the club.

Hunt steered his side to one last victory and fourth place on the league standings before they cease to exist in their current guise, with a hard-fought 3-1 defeat of Polokwane City at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

Wits will relocate to Limpopo ahead of next season and be renamed Tshakhuma Tsha Mandzivadhila, leaving Hunt without a job.

But the serial league winner is nonetheless delighted with the legacy he has left behind, after seven years in charge of the club.

Hunt told Soccer Laduma: "It was a great way to finish, I think we finished fourth which is great with what we've got. It's fantastic! I’m really proud of the players and the club.

"When a coach leaves you always think you want to leave it in a better place than when you arrived, but there's not going to be that.

“I want to be remembered for giving lots of players opportunities and most importantly, I want to be remembered for winning the league, that is something you can never take away."

Hunt won the Telkom Knockout, the MTN8 and the Absa Premiership title with Bidvest Wits.
