Johnson Finally Explains Shock Pitso Divorce

Former Al Ahly assistant coach Cavin Johnson has revealed the reason behind his surprise exit from the Egyptian powerhouse.

Johnson served as an assistant to Pitso Mosimane for over 11 months, helping the team to a number of trophies which included back-to-back CAF Champions League titles.

Naturally, it came as a huge shock when the experienced coach parted ways with the Red Eagles, with no official announcement from Johnson or the club at the time.

But now, the 63-year-old coach has given a philosophical reason behind his departure from the African club of the Century.

“Sometimes a strong relationship comes to an end, that’s what happened, if a chance avails itself I would happily return to Al Ahly,” Johnson told Egyptian TV channel ONTime Sports.

“My time with Al Ahly was wonderful, I worked with a professional team, and it added to my experience, Al Ahly is an African icon,” he said.

In addition, Johnson, who has been linked with a return to the DStv Premiership has heaped praise on the club president Mahmoud El Khatib, who he regards as one of the best things to happen to his career.

“Working under the guidance of Mahmoud El-Khatib is one of the best things in my career, he doesn’t speak a lot but he’s always there for the team, and when he speaks, his words have an encouraging effect. El-Khatib was one of Africa’s best players, him being Al Ahly president reflects the club’s ideals, he knows how to lead the club to the summit.

“I hope he stays in his position [club president] for ten more years, he’s brilliant, I haven’t met anyone like him in Egypt,” he added.
