“The team has not only been losing games, but it’s been performing badly as well, so the management feels that a new man is need to turn the club’s fortunes. There’s lack of discipline in the team, and it looks like Gavin has lost the dressing room,” said the source.

“Talks between Wits and Gordon [Igesund] have already begun, and I think Hunt will be axed soon. But as it is the norm in SA football, they’ll be denials all round,” added the source.

Igesund is currently unattached after partying ways with Highlands Park in April after failing to lift the team out of the relegation zone.
