Agent Confirms Johnson Exit

Cavin Johnson's agent has now confirmed the coach's exit from SuperSport United, with the 55-year-old having parted ways with the club just over one year into his three-year contract.

Johnson's agent, Steve Kapeluschnik, confirmed the mutual termination to the Siya crew, saying, "Cavin was mandated to buuld a new team and he brought a lot of youngsters in. SuperSport wanted results immediately and he needed a bit of time. He felt that, if his mandate was to build a team, then he needed time to that. Time that he ultimately wasn't given."

Following the 2-1 defeat to Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday night, it was reported that Johnson told his players that he thought it may be his last game in charge, and it has now come to light that that was the case.

Johnson was tasked with challenging for honours in the PSL this season following a busy transfer window for Matsatsantsa, but they started their 2014/15 campaign with a heavy defeat to Orlando Pirates and have picked up just one win from their first five games.

With Johnson gone, Gordon Igesund is favourite to take over at the Tshwane-based club, with the Siya crew confirming earlier this morning that the former Bafana Bafana head coach has agreed terms and could possibly be announced on Monday.
