It has been widely reported that Al Ahly assistant coach Cavin Johnson has parted ways with the club ahead of the new season. Johnson is believed to be back in South Africa and this has created a speculation that he might have been offered a job in one of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs. So far Al Ahly and Johnson representatives have not confirmed the departure. But the speculation is rife that he could be joining a PSL club.
The well-travelled Johnson has been heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates, although it has now been revealed that Kaizer Chiefs have been tracking him for some time. According to Soccer Laduma reports, Chiefs have been interested in adding the Johnson to their technical set-up for several months.
It is understood that Amakhosi made contact with Johnson's camp while he was still with Al Ahly, although the talks did not amount to much as he was under contract and fully committed to his role alongside Pitso Mosimane.
It also understood that Chiefs were assessing the option of adding him to their senior side’s technical team or development structures to head the club’s youth development, a role which has since been filled by Molefi Ntseki.
With Cavin Johnson being heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates, do you think Chiefs might convince him to come to Naturena? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
