I'm still the right man for the job – Cavin Johnson

Embattled Kaizer Chiefs interim head coach Cavin Johnson still believes that he’s the right man for the job at the present moment and the players have not given up on him yet.

Johnson was responding to questions during the post-match presser following a 1-0 loss to the high-riding and impressive Stellenbosch FC, in a Dstv Premiership match played at the FNB stadium on Tuesday night.

This was Chiefs fourth loss in 13 matches under Johnson, the club continues to slip down on the log standings. But Johnson still says he’s the right man for the job for now.

''Always, I believe that. They haven't given up hope, we need to find the right player to score the goals and as a group we are struggling to get that. Not to be tonight, but the team and I, we are still together,'' said Johnson.

Johnson took over the reigns as the interim head coach at the club late in October after Chiefs had parted ways with Molefi Ntseki who had also been roped in as the head coach after the club hierarchy failed to secure a head coach during the off-season.

Johnson, whose original job is that of a Head of Academy at Chiefs, says it will be up to the club bosses to decide if he will also be in contention for the permanent head coaching job at the troubled Amakhosi.

 ''Look we there, and like I said there's no interim coach anywhere in the world. You do the job because you are offered the job to do it at that moment and you have to do your best. 

Right now we are trying our best as a group of people and if it works you clap hands and say thank you. You ask the team to decide what they want to do and that's where I am at the moment,'' added Johnson. 

It was a below-par performance from Chiefs as they once again proved to be toothless in the final third, hardly creating any clear-cut chances as Johnson also attests.

Chiefs have only won one game in their last seven matches, and only scored four goals in those games conceding five goals and keeping four clean sheets.

With these unsatisfactory results, Johnson says they are not a happy camp at the moment when he describes the mood in the dressing room.
