Pirates Open Talks With Highly-rated Coach

After his 'controversial' departure from Al Ahly, Cavin Johnson has attracted interest from one of the Premier Soccer League giants, Orlando Pirates. And it is now understood that they have made an official approach for his services.

The 62-year-old Johnson has been in the country for the last few weeks after parting ways with the CAF Champions League winners. He spent 11 months at the Egyptian giants as Pitso Mosimane’s second-in-command.

Johnson has attracted the interest of both Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, with the indications that Chiefs had made an approach for his services, earmarking him for the head of technical position that was filled by Molefi Ntseki, with Johnson fully committed to Al Ahly at the time.

If Johnson comes on board, it is understood that he would take up a similar post at Pirates as he was offered at Chiefs, where he would advise first team caretaker coaches Davids and Ncikazi, while overseeing the club’s youth development.
