Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson says he has a clear vision for the club and while there is the appeal of becoming a full-time head coach, he says it is not his main goal.

“[There] is through results, but just the fabric that operates throughout this village, the people who work for it, how people work for it, why they work for this team – and the purpose What is this team’s future.
for many generations to come
“For example, when I look and compare, Al Ahly, when I look at their young players – they know the generations that have won trophies – when I look at the young generation of leaders, they don’t know the generation of [ Patrick ] Ace Ntsoelengoe
“And that’s the fabric that has to go through this club, when you talk about Vina, Patco, Sprinter, you know that fabric, that’s the fabric that people This man has evolved and the fabric has to come through the rest, it’s important that we feel it.
