Kaizer Chiefs ended a week of speculation on Thursday afternoon when they announced former Wits mentor, Gavin Hunt as their new head coach.

Hunt replaces Ernst Middendorp who was sacked by the club last Wednesday after narrowly missing out on the league title to Mamelodi Sundowns

Chiefs believe that Hunt, who has tasted success often in local football, is the right man to end the club's trophy drought which goes back to the 2014/2015 season.

"We believe that with Hunt we have brought in a person with the right experience and energy to do just that," Chiefs supremo, Kaizer Motaung said in a statement announcing the signing.

Naturally, after the announcement, Twitter went into overdrive as Chiefs fans (and others) took to social media to let their thoughts be known.

Here are some of the best tweets:
