Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has praised coach Jomo Sono for spotting and grooming talented players.

Hunt signed midfielder Thabang Monare from Jomo cosmos during the transfer period.

Monare was paired with Xola Mlambo,  who was signed by Wits from Chippa United during the off season, when the Clever Boys played against Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night.   The newly acquired midfielders put in a good shift in their debut game for Wits.

“There is one thing that Jomo Sono can do, he can sign players. He knows players. The two players I got from Cosmos are good players, we have been training and moulding them and they are good players. Monare is a good player. I watch him last season and I liked him the first time I saw him,” said Hunt.
