Abha Club manager, Pitso Mosimane, remains the top figure tipped to be appointed as the next Kaizer Chiefs coach, but reports say Jose Peseiro could get the appointment.

Since the sacking of Molefi Ntseki in October 2023 after just four months of his appointment, Cavin Johnson has been drafted to the position temporarily.

However, Amakhosi have continued to struggle to get the desired result, having crashed out of this season's NedBank Cup.

Cavin Johnson reacts to Stellenbosch defeat

Sports Brief earlier reported that Cavin Johnson admitted that it was a poor performance from their defeat to Stellenbosch.

The tactician, however, stated his side should have scored lots of goals against the Stellies who maintain their second position on the log.

Despite their 2-0 loss to Chippa United in a DStv clash on Saturday, April 6, Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson says his side could have scored five or six goals.
