Chiefs took to social media to announce that they have signed former Al Ahly assistant coach Cavin Johnson. Johnson will officially take over as the Head of Academy.

He will oversee the club’s youth academy and the scouting network. Johnson will, therefore, be responsible for finding new talent for the first team and breeding the next generation of Chiefs' youngsters.

As noted by Transfermarkt, Johnson has previously coached AmaZulu FC, Platinum Stars and SuperSport United.

Johnson joins fellow new signings

As noted by FARPost, Johnson isn't the only new face in the Amakhosi's backroom staff.

They recently brought in sports psychologist Dr Henning Gericke as a high-performance coach and brought back goalkeeper coach Rainer Dinkelacker. The experienced faces will lend support to Molefi Ntseki as he tries to turn the club's fortunes around.

Fans aren't that convinced with Ntseki's tenure thus far and have already called for him to be sacked.

Angry Chiefs' fans want Ntseki gone

Some angry Kaizer Chiefs fans have called for the sacking of Molefi Nteski following their loss to SuperSport United.

A 2nd-minute goal by Terrence Dzvukamanja was enough to ensure that AmaKhosi were defeated away from home on Wednesday evening.

After the game, police officers had to stop irate Chiefs fans from attacking Ntseki, who watched as his boys were outplayed, Sports Brief reported.

Fans throw objects at Ntseki

Sports Brief also reported on furious Chiefs fans pelting Molefi Ntseki with objects after the Amakhosi lost another game in the DStv Premiership this season.

The embattled team were defeated by TS Galaxy after a Brandon Peterson-own goal in the second half, leaving Chiefs without a win in three games in the league this season.

Supporters previously threw objects at Arthur Zwane during his stint in charge of the club.
