Breaking: Chiefs Make Surprise Johnson Decision

Kaizer Chiefs have announced they have parted ways with former Head of Academy-turned-caretaker coach, Cavin Johnson.

Johnson joined Amakhosi in September as Head of Academy, but quickly took over as the interim coach in October after Molefi Ntseki was shown the exit door following a poor start to the 2023/24 campaign.

The former SuperSport United mentor started with four wins in seven games before the Africa Cup of Nations break, but experienced a difficult second half of the campaign, with Amakhosi finishing outside the top eight after adding just two more wins.

The club management are in the process of making wholesome changes to the technical team and are set to announce Nasreddine Nabi as their new head coach. The Tunisian tactician will add Fernando Da Cruz as first assistant coach, goalkeeper coach Ilyes Mzoughi, and strength and conditioning Majdi Safi.

While it initially looked like Johnson would survive the chop and return to his previous post as Head of Academy, the club has now announced his departure.

“Kaizer Chiefs have agreed to an amicable parting of ways with head of Academy, Cavin Johnson,” the club stated.

“Johnson joined Kaizer Chiefs in September 2023 to take up his role at the Club. The departure is part of the restructuring process that the Club is undertaking.

“We wish to thank Mr Johnson for his contribution to Kaizer Chiefs and wish him well in the future.”
