As Kaizer Chiefs fans clamour for Cavin Johnson's complete exit from the club, the team's board has finally made a decision.

After leading Amakhosi to a 10th-place finish in the just-concluded season, Johnson’s name is far from the fans' favourite.

The 65-year-old was in charge of the club during their dismal second half of the season, which many have branded a disaster.

Barely weeks into the start of the 2023/2024 season, Molefi Ntseki was sacked due to bad results, with Johnson taking over on an interim basis.

Ntseki's situation worsened after their loss to AmaZulu, which resulted in their exit from the first round of the Carling Knockout Cup.

Irate fans subjected the tactician to abuse, and hurled objects at him during matches. He was eventually let go, and then Johnson was appointed in the hope that he would be able to steady the ship.

However, things would only get worse under the interim boss, as they recorded the most losses in a year and also the lowest league finish in their history—10th.

As a result, Chiefs fans are calling for the manager to be removed from the club completely.

The latest report from iDiski Times claims that Kaizer Chiefs has decided to retain the manager. The report added:

“Kaizer Chiefs will retain the services of Cavin Johnson and he will go back to his old role and continue as Head of the Academy.
"Amakhosi are yet to make any official announcement on their changes to the technical team and playing stuff."

McCarthy to leave Manchester United

Sports Brief earlier reported that English Premier League club Manchester United have made their final decision over former South African international Benni McCarthy.

After months of speculation over the striker coach's future, the situation of the Bafana Bafana legend has taken another twist.

Recall that in May, McCarthy spoke glowingly about PSL club Kaizer Chiefs during a South African radio station program.
