Moroka Swallows coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed that he is staying with the Beautiful Birds as he wants to build the club into a great team.
"Yes, I am definitely staying with Swallows. I first spoke to Leon Prins (MD) about six months ago and I agreed to stay with the club and sign a new contract when my current one expired," said Hunt, who was busy taking his team into battle against SuperSport United in a friendly game.
The former Hellenic and Black Leopards mentor confirmed that Pirates had indeed come in for an offer for him.
"I did speak to Irwin Khoza. He just enquired to whether my services were available. It was an attractive offer to move to a team like Pirates, but I have decided that I want to stay with the Birds."
"At the other managererial jobs I have had, I have always built the team up and then left. But now I would like to stay at Swallows and continue the job I have started and make Swallows even stronger," Hunt told the Bird's website.
He confirmed that former Wits striker Ivan Winstanley and Bloemfontein Celtic striker Cecil Oerson have signed for the club and explained the thinking behind the signings.
"I am looking for players who will add more consistency to the side - players who will be able to play 40 games in the season and give their all for the club."
The former Hellenic right-back also confirmed that he is still in the process of looking to add another defender or two to his team.
