Dikwena Release Johnson Statement

With much speculation surrounding the future of head coach, Cavin Johnson, Platinum Stars have released a statement reiterating that they want to keep their mentor on the Dikwena bench.

Johnson has been linked with a move to SuperSport United to replace their former coach, Gavin Hunt, with the Siya crew recently revealing that Dikwena had turned down Johnson's resignation.

 

Stars have now said that Johnson should "refer a dispute to arbitration in terms of the football rules as he is entitled to do", if he is adamant to leave the Phokeng-based outfit.

 

The statement on their official website said:

 

"The facts are as follows-

 

1. Mr. Johnson has performed admirably while at the club, he has a contract with the club, and Platinum Stars have no intention of terminating the relationship.

 

2. Mr. Johnson has however indicated that he wishes to move on and Platinum Stars have been informed that there are various clubs interested in his services with whom he intends contracting.

 

3. Platinum Stars has every intention of commencing the coming football season with Mr. Johnson as the head coach of the first team and we hope that the club’s right to enforce its contracts will be respected by Mr. Johnson and all other stakeholders and participants in the game.

 

4. In view of the need for certainty – both for the club and Mr. Johnson – we have invited Mr. Johnson to commit to the club or, if he believes he is entitled to leave, to refer a dispute to arbitration in terms of the football rules as he is entitled to do.

 

We have made these comments in view of the widespread reporting on the matter but do not intend discussing the issue any further in the media for reasons of privacy and also of course because any dispute or difference that there may be should be dealt with in the correct forums and not in the media. Our relationship with Mr. Johnson has always been professional and we intend maintaining that."
