Johnson Confirms Chiefs Talk
Cavin Johnson has confirmed there is some truth in the rumours he was in talks to join Kaizer Chiefs as Head of Youth before moving to Al Ahly.
The 63-year-old has returned to South Africa after working alongside Pitso Mosimane at the Club of the Century.
The former Platinum Stars, Supersport United, Platinum Stars, AmaZulu and Black Stars coach, however, left his role as assistant of Al Ahly at the end of last season.
Johnson explained why he decided to leave Al Ahly, insisting he didn’t exit on bad terms.
“Sometimes you get married and you find out along the that it doesn’t work out. There are other things that are changing your mindset,” he told Thabiso Mosia on SAFM.
“You do certain things in life for the benefit of yourself and nobody and that is the reason why I came home.
“I wasn’t unhappy. But you get married and you are happily married but there are many things you feel are not going your way and you get divorced but you don’t tell everybody why you got divorced.
“It was an amicable situation.”
Johnson was also asked about rumours linking him with a job as Chiefs’ as Head of Youth before he moved to Al Ahly and he confirmed that there is some truth to that.
“There was a little bit of truth to that. But like I said, we have to see, we have to wait and see what happens next time.”
Johnson also confirmed that he has not yet decided whether he wants to go back to coaching or take up a role around the development of players.
“Well that’s why I keep talking to my chest to see what the next step is going to be and to see where things can open up and I can give my expertise and give my very best to whoever I can,” he explained.
