Hunt Spills Beans On Nurkovic Transfer Talk

Previous Kaizer Chiefs mentor Gavin Hunt has uncovered that Samir Nurkovic frantically needed to leave the club last year, and he would've supplanted him with Bradley Grobler.

Chase, who spent just shy of nine months at Chiefs, emerged to make sense of what precisely unfolded during his spell at Naturena with the Amakhosi striker.

The previous Chiefs mentor said the Serbian striker needed to leave the Soweto monsters yet the club's initiative picked against selling him since they couldn't get a substitution because of their exchange boycott.

"Last year when I got to Kaizer Chiefs he [Samir Nurkovic] needed out," Hunt said on Monday Night Football on Front Runner.

"He was harmed and he needed out. There was a chance for Kaizer Chiefs to sell him yet the issue was the boycott. Assuming we sold him for good cash, we were unable to supplant him.

"So I got where the club, Bobby and them, came from. Who are we going to get? We can't buy since there's a FIFA boycott.

"I said 'well he doesn't genuinely take care of us now at any rate, he isn't playing. He won't play for quite some time now in any case and he won't ever play. To be fair I thought he might have returned a piece before. Yet, in any case, he actually had the mound on his back about not being sold.

"You had a player that was harmed and miserable and you never got cash for him, and presently his worth has dropped. However, he's free now to go anyplace.

"They clearly want to take a gander at him now the last seven or eight games, which I figure a choice ought to have been made quite some time ago. He's had parcel of clubs in his vocation as of now, perhaps it appears as though he is a couple of season kind of player then you got move him."

Chase additionally makes sense of that he by and by would've sold Nurkovic no matter what the exchange boycott, with Bradley Grobler being arranged as his substitution.

"In the event that we had the option to supplant him," he made sense of.

"Taking everything into account, what planned to happen was, we planned to get Bradley Grobler last year.

"So he planned to go and Grobler would've come in. It planned to be a neighborhood [player] and that was the discussion. That was the discussion. I sat down briefly to chat with Bobby and Kaizer and everyone, that was the discussion.

"'Yet, assuming you sell him, you can't supplant him' [was a response]. I said 'However he won't play'. In any case, he was exceptionally unsettled about not being given up. He returned the final part of the period and he played to a great extent yet he unquestionably was troubled about the circumstance."
