I started as a professional in 1981 and finished in 1994… I was on R90 a month. R50 a win and R25 a draw. I bought a car, I bought a flat… It was a lot of money!

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

I pretty much came from a broken home… There wasn’t a very healthy upbringing… I tried to make a life; thank God football came into my life…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

Each week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays” feature.

This week he interviewed Gavin Hunt, coach of the Premier Soccer League club Bidvest Wits.

Hunt (born 11 July 1964) spent most of his career as a player with Hellenic.

He went into coaching immediately upon retiring from playing due to injury.

Hunt achieved success with SuperSport United where he won three consecutive PSL championships from 2007-08 to 2009-10.

He has managed Seven Stars, Hellenic FC, Black Leopards and Moroka Swallows.

  • What does Hunt believe about money?

  • Does it keep him up at night?

  • Does he spend like crazy or save compulsively?

  • How did his childhood experiences shape his views about money?

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and scroll down for more quotes from it).

I thought I was gonna have to go to the army [why he didn’t take up an offer at 15 to play in the UK]… You couldn’t duck… you’d go to jail!

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

The older you get the better you think you used to be… game intelligence was better in our time… the game is much quicker today… in our day there was more a methodical build-up…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

I was very conscious [about money growing up] and I’m still conscious today…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

I think the youth of today are too free spending…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t talk to a player about his financial situation… it’s part of the game; you’ve got to accept it… The players certainly need a lot of help… There are a lot of people taking from these players…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

I’m a bit of a brick man… buying properties… I’m fascinated by property… I can tell you what a house is worth… I once bought a flat for R8000 and sold it for R25 000…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

Clothes… I’m a bit of a brand person…

Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits

My daughter has 30 pairs of trainers… Very difficult to say ‘no’…
