Cavin Johnson: Chiefs Coach Explains Why He Replaced Petersen with Khune Against Cape Town Spurs
- Cavin Johnson has disclosed the reason behind his decision to replace Brandon Petersen with Itumeleng Khune
- The Kaizer Chiefs interim coach led the Amakhosi to a 3-2 win over Cape Town Spurs at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday
- The Glamour Boys' next game in the PSL will be the Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates this weekend
Kaizer Chiefs interim manager Cavin Johnson has disclosed why he replaced Brandon Petersen with South African legend Itumeleng Khune against Cape Town Spurs.
The Amakhosi defeated the Urban Warriors 3-2 at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday with goals from Edson Castillo, Ranga Chivaviro, and Christian Saile.
Johnson had Petersen in goal in his first game in charge of Chiefs but opted for Khune in their victory over the Urban Warriors.
Petersen's performance in the first half of the season was not good enough, as he made some errors that led to goals.
During an interview after the game, the South African coach opened up on why he replaced the 29-year-old shot-stopper with the veteran goalkeeper, according to a report by iDiskiTimes.
"Brandon, it’s a psychological thing. It could’ve happened to Khune, it could’ve happened to Bvuma," he said.
"But we need to protect what belongs to us and sometimes we have to make those decisions in order to protect the players for the future. I think he’ll just get stronger and stronger."
Cavin Johnson's side's next game in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) would be the Soweto derby against their archrivals Orlando Pirates.
