What Cavin Johnson feels he has changed at Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson has pointed out aspects he believes he has changed at the club since taking charge.

Johnson has been in charge of the first team since October this year after the departure of Molefi Ntseki.

He has been in charge of seven matches winning four, drawing one and losing two. Chiefs also go into the Afcon break at the sixth spot, five points behind the CAF Champions League spot.


Speaking after the 1-1 draw against Sekhukhune United on Saturday, the 65-year-old outlined things that he has quickly changed at the club in his short period as the coach.

“The change as far as the team is concerned, yes we brought a little bit more effort,” he said.

“A little bit of more technical ideas, and tactical ideas as far as the team should play and it has worked.

“It has worked as far as the players have welcomed it and they enjoy it and sometimes it just happens that you are able to do that with a particular team and it works. Sometimes I use the same methodology with another team and it fails dismally,” he explained.

Johnson also praised the teamwork within the club rather than taking credit alone for the recent positive results.

“I always believe that if you lead a football team it’s always about us. It can never be about Cavin Johnson, if it’s about Cavin Johnson then there is something that means I have a very big head that has got a lot of things in it.

“But it’s not about that. I always allow people that I work with and people that work for me in order to be able to express themselves.

“There are always many people behind me that probably got more degrees than I have and you need to use those degrees because they didn’t go to school for nothing. So that’s why it’s always about us, it’s never about me,” he added.
