Undefeated Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena has compared Supersport United coach Gavin Hunt with an animal called a honey badger.
Both coaches will lock horns on Monday when they face each other in a DStv Premiership match. Sundowns will be looking to extend their gap of thirteen points whereas Supersport United will want to lower it to seven points. During Sundowns media briefing Mokwena stated that his rival coach Gavin Hunt is like a honey badger!
“It is very funny, a couple of years ago Gavin Hunt made a reference to a honey badger and he compared Steve Komphela to a honey badger,” said Mokwena on Thursday.
“I didn’t know what a honey badger was at that time though I follow animals and spend a lot of time on safari to try to understand them. I would compare Gavin Hunt to a honey badger himself, because a honey badger is one of the smartest animals.
“What makes it smart is it comes with solutions and Gavin Hunt will come with solutions, there is no doubt about that. He will complain [and] say, ‘I don’t have Grant Margeman’, who is one of his best players, but he will come up with a solution because that is what honey badgers do.
“There was a honey badger kept in Pretoria and it found its way out of captivity by using stones, rocks and sticks to escape. For sure, Gavin will find solutions as he is experienced and a proven winner.
“He will come up with solutions and a means to make sure they are strong enough to fight against us,” he ended.
Hunt’s record against Sundowns is not impressive having managed to collect only eleven wins against them on 37 occasions and lost seventeen times against the Brazilians.
