Hunt: Amr Gamal should’ve been top scorer in South Africa

Bidvest Wits manager had high hopes for , saying the Egyptian should have been the South African league top scorer.

Gamal joined Bidvest Wits on loan from Al Ahly last summer, and started his career in South Africa well, scoring in his first two league games, before going 11 without a single goal.

He also guided Bidvest to the Telkom Knockout title, scoring three goals in four games as well as assisting the winner in the final game against Bloemfontein Celtic.

But Gavin Hunt revealed he expected more from Gamal after the South African side failed to defend their league title, as they currently sit 10th with only four games to go.

“I think from pre-season, the whole defence was out at a certain time, then our midfield was out right at the beginning, so that didn’t help,” Hunt said.

“Then we had to bring in a lot of new players, which didn’t work out, as we know, so that’s disappointing.

“The striker [Amr Gamal] should’ve been the top scorer in South Africa, but that didn’t work out, so that was disappointing,” he added.

Amr Gamal terminated his loan spell with Bidvest last March and joined Finnish giants HJK Helsinki on loan until next August.

He is yet to score with HJK, but he provided one assist in five games as they currently sit top of the Veikkausliiga with three wins from three, and have qualified for the Finnish Cup final, where they will meet Inter Turku.
