Hunt proud of Bafana 'Birds'

Moroka Swallows coach Gavin Hunt was a proud man after three of his players were selected in the Bafana Bafana squad that will play Lesotho in a friendly on Wednesday evening.

The three Swallows midfielders - Maimane Phiri, Cecil Oerson and Lefa Tsutsulupa - were selected by Bafana caretaker coach Pitso Mosimane for the one-off clash.

"Any coach will be proud to have one of his players in the national squad because this proves that he is doing something right," Hunt told his club's official website.

He added: "These players have done a marvellous job for us this past season and hopefully they can do the same for the country.

"I am confident about their capabilities and Pitso's style of play is similar to ours, so I think they will fit in perfectly into his set up."

Meanwhile, Hunt has welcomed the news that Orlando Stadium will get a R200-million facelift.

"This is good news to the people of Soweto because the stadium will get more PSL matches," he added.

Hunt, meanwhile, also thanked the Swallows supporters for rallying behind the team the entire 2005/06 season and urged them to continue their support next season.
