Cavin Johnson promise to bring joy and happiness to 16 million Kaizer Chiefs fans

Bringing smiles, joy, and happiness to the multitudes of Kaizer Chiefs fans, tops acting head coach Cavin Johnson’s agenda as the club starts yet another cup competition.

Amakhosi will host Motsepe Foundation Championship side Milford FC in a last-32 Nedbank Cup clash at the FNB Stadium on Sunday evening.

Chiefs tasted some silverware back in 2014/2015 season with a league and cup double that was followed by a nine-year trophy drought.

The biggest football team in the country with an estimated 16 million supporters, Johnson says Amakhosi fans deserve better.

"I think within the team, we have a lot of positives and with the positives comes the young blood and with the young blood comes the ability to go on the pitch amd do what they can in order to make the people and supports outside of the village even happier," Johnson said.

I think what we're getting right as far as Kaizer Chiefs is concerned is that we do know that we need to please, we have 16 million supporters and for me, that is my biggest trophy I will win when I make them all smile. Why? Because I've seen what it's like to make 60 million supporters happy. So, when you talk about 60 million and 16 [million], I don't think I've changed my appetite for that. So, yes we will smile soon, God help me."

Johnson also says realistically this is the only chance of winning some silverware this season, with Mamelodi Sundowns running away with the league title again. He says a club like Chiefs should be in contention to win all the trophies they are competing for.

"Personally, it would mean the world to me. I think Kaizer Chiefs and the massive following that we have, it will be huge and yes, I think any club in the PSL puts a lot emphasis on any trophy. I don't think we are different to any other club,” Johnson added. “I don't think any coach who has worked here before has put emphasis on 'No, I would like to win this trophy, I'd like to win that trophy'. I think any coach who works at any club, whatever trophies are available, we want to win. But if I was here from the beginning then I would say guys there's four trophies and I want to win all four and when you have a big following like this club has and a big institution like this club is then for sure want to win all the trophies and this is the last one that's on offer.

“Let's hope Sundowns lose five games in the league then we have a change to the league as well."
