Cavin Johnson has set the record straight on his relationship with coach Pitso Mosimane as well as addressing talk of him joining up with Kaizer Chiefs.
Johnson served as an assistant coach to Mosimane in a trophy-laden 11-month spell in which the duo led the Red Eagles to two CAF Champions League trophies, the Egyptian Premier League, and a third-placed finish at the FIFA Club World Cup amongst other trophies.

Mosimane has remained tight-lipped over Johnson’s departure from the club back in September, but the veteran coach maintains that the relationship between the two is still intact despite going separate ways.
“It’s always very good. It’s always colleague-to-colleague and the relationship is never broken, it’s always there. So, we will always have a good, sound relationship,” Johnson told Soccer Laduma of his relationship with Mosimane in Edition 1252.
Meanwhile, the Siya crew reported that Kaizer Chiefs expressed an interest in luring Johnson to Naturena whilst he was still on the books of Al Ahly, although the former SuperSport United mentor was fully committed to the Cairo giants at the time.
Now, the 63-year old confirmed that there was interest from Amakhosi at the time, although he brushed it off as rumours.
“Ja, that was there, but that was all just rumours. I think they were all just rumours,” Johnson said.
