Johnson On United's Assistant Coaching Situation
SuperSport United coach, Cavin Johnson, has set the record straight on rumours linking coaches to the club.
In issue 878 of Soccer Laduma, it was revealed that Eric Tinkler, Neil Tovey and Harris Choeu were among the coaches linked with the assistant coaching job under Johnson at Matsatsantsa.
“As far as SuperSport is concerned, the assistant job position has never been available to anybody in the country. SuperSport management, Mr Stan Matthews will give you an official statement,” said Johnson.
Soccer Laduma understands that the SuperSport assistant coaching job has been vacant since the end of last season when its previous occupier, Kwanele Kopo, was moved to another role in the club.
In the meantime, Johnson is preparing his team for the start of the 2014/15 season in August. Johnson’s side will be away to Wits for their opening game of the new season, while the side will be hosting PSL returnees, Chippa United, in the second game of the campaign.
The first round of fixtures for the new season will be played during the weekend of 8, 9 and 10 of August.
