Johnson Talks Tactics After Doctor Criticism

Kaizer Chiefs caretaker coach Cavin Johnson has responded to questions whether he got his tactics right in the Soweto Derby.

Amakhosi went ahead twice in the five-goal thriller but lost 3-2, as the Buccaneers completed the double over their bitter rivals to move into second place.

After the match Chiefs legend Khumalo was among those who questioned Johnson’s tactics and was especially baffled with the coach’s decision to substitute both right-back Reeve Frosler as well as right winger Christian Saile just minutes before Pirates scored their third via Chiefs’ right side.

Johnson, though, insisted that he felt they had their tactics correct and did ok against Pirates’ left side with Relebohile Mofokeng and Deon Hotto.

“They overloaded with Hotto, but I thought tactically we got it right. I don’t think Hotto was a big, big threat in the first half because he was looking to defend as well,” he told journalists.

“We could’ve gone in with a lot more on the right side because they were coming down with Hotto and Mofokeng, they were going to Reeve [Frosler].

“But we were able to steal that ball a lot of times and I think Saile should’ve just been a little more clever to use the space behind them, but not to be today.”
