Kaizer Chiefs’ attacking midfielder Nkosingiphile Ngcobo says Cavin Johnson is getting the best out of him and his teammates by allowing them to play freely and enjoy their games.
Johnson was appointed as care-taker coach of the Amakhosi first team in October last year and has been in charge of seven league matches.
He has bagged 13 points from a possible 21 – 10 in their last four matches, a run that has seen them move to sixth position on the DStv Premiership log with 24 points.
Mshini, as Ngcobo is affectionately known, told iDiski Times senior writer Velile Mnyandu in the latest edition of the newspaper that the coach preaches freedom to his players.
“Coach Cavin just wants everyone to be free and enjoy playing for Kaizer Chiefs and to do your best and everything will go well,” Mshini told iDiski Times when asked how Johnson has revived his form.
“Like I said [he tells me] to be free. It’s the same thing: ‘just do what you can do and show that you’re talented’. That’s what he wants from us.”
