Gavin Hunt claims SuperSport can’t compete with Sundowns

SuperSport United coach has stated that his side cannot compete with Mamelodi Sundowns due to the difference in quality and standards between the two clubs.

Matsatsantsa have leapfrogged Richards Bay in the table to move to the second place, seven points behind their main rivals Sundowns.

Masandawana have won five of the last six DStv Premiership titles and are looking to lift the trophy for the sixth time in a row, and Hunt believes there are no challenge for them even this season.

Speaking to reporters in his post-match press conference, Hunt was asked how his team and other clubs can compete with the juggernaut that is Sundowns.

“We are not even halfway (to challenging) Mamelodi Sundowns,” Hunt told Thisisfootball.Africa after the match.

“As I said, it’s a long, long way to go. We have got three away games now, Cape Town, Durban, and Loftus. So, it’s going to be tough for us.

“We can go through this if we can keep on pushing. But as I said, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves, we have got a tough game in Cape Town on Tuesday. It’s difficult to play in this time of the year, but we’ll do our best.”

SuperSport will have to shift their focus to their next three away matches when they meet Cape Town City, Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns mid-January.
