In as much as Kaizer Chiefs FC appointed the interim coach Cavin Johnson, we have been told that Kaizer Chiefs FC management have not stopped interviewing other coaches with the sake of getting someone who will lead Chiefs to glory days.
According to the latest reports from many publications, Polokwane City FC’s head coach Lehlohonolo Seema is one of the coaches who are being interviewed. According to the sources, Mamelodi Sundowns FC co-coach Manqoba Mningthi is expected to also be interviewed.
As a reminder, before Kaizer Chiefs FC appointing the former Al Ahly and Pitso Mosimane’s assistant coach Cavin Johnson weeks as a interim coach, former Kaizer Chiefs FC head coach who was appointed as the coach before the start of the season Molefi Ntseki, has finally broken his silence.
Kaizer Chiefs coach Molefi Ntseki did spok about the influence and role the recently appointed head of Academy Cavin Johnson has in the first team.
The former Al Ahly assistant coach was appointed last month to oversee the club’s youth academy and scouting.
The sixty four years old has been involved with the development of young players before at Transnet School of Excellence as well as the Royal Bafokeng Sports Academy.
Ntseki was asked ahead of the Carling Knockout Cup clash against AmaZulu FC about the role Johnson has with the first team.
Molefi Ntseki’s comment was shared just after the club’s chairman birthday, as Kaizer Motaung was celebrating seventy nine years old.
“At Kaizer Chiefs, we have technical conversations and they take place anytime. We were [recently] celebrating the chairman’s birthday and there was a technical conversation in our celebration,” explained Ntseki.
Molefi Ntseki on Cavin Johnson’s role at Kaizer Chiefs first team as a new member.
“So, coach Cavin Johnson will always be part of our technical meetings. He has a vast amount of experience in the game. So it is always very interesting for us to be having those technical conversations.
“But I think the most important thing is that he has got respect and confidence in our team. In terms of how we do things. It is just a matter of time before things fall into place. But like I said every member of Kaizer Chiefs, we always engage and involve ourselves in our discussions,” he added.
Amakhosi are set to host AmaZulu FC in the Last 16 rounds of the Carling Knockout on Saturday. It will be the second meeting between the two clubs this season with Chiefs coming out 3-0 victorious in the DStv Premiership clash in August.
“What I have always been saying is that every game we play is a cup game. So we have not been winning Cup games and I think now it’s the time for us to turn the corner.
“We fully understand that it comes with hard work, it comes with proper preparation going into this match. At the same time you give respect to your opponent. At the same time, there is only one team that has to win on Saturday,” said Ntseki ahead of the match.
