Matsatsantsa finally appoint a new coach

AFTER Gavin Hunt left SuperSport United at the end of last season to join Bidvest Wits, the Tshwane-based side’s management appointed Cavin Johnson as their new coach ahead of the 2013-2014 season.

The former Platinum Star coach has been given a huge task to fill Hunt’s shoes at Matsatsantsa a Pitori, after the three-time league winning coach left the club to join the Johannesburg outfit Wits for what is believed to be a lucrative deal. Matsatsantsa’s chairman Khulu Sibiya said during the official unveiling of the new coach that he is confident that United will also do well under the guidance of Johnson.

Sibiya further said that he mandated Johnson who is well known of his good development work to do better with Matsatsantsa than he had done with the North West-based team. He said that the three-times PSL champions side was proud to continue its policy of hiring local coaches.

"Acquiring the signature of Johnson has been one of the simplest things that the team has done," said Sibiya.

Johnson, who led Stars popularly known as Dikwena, to a second-place spot of the Premier Soccer League last season behind the eventual winners, Kaizer Chiefs is credited by discovering the English Premier League player Steven Pienaar as an Ajax Cape Town youth coach. His sterling work last season at Dikwena also includes reaching the prestigious Nedbank Cup semi-finals where Stars were knocked out by SuperSport.

Despite of still awaiting to announce his new technical team, the 55 year old coach will also reunite with his former influential players at Dikwena, Thuso Phala and Innocent Mkhabela who both were unveiled as the new players that Matsatsantsa have already signed. However, the rumours doing rounds in the sport fraternity at the moment have it that Johnson may opt for the former Chiefs midfielder John "Shoes" Moshoeu to be his first assistant coach.

It remains to be seen whom the former Stars will include in his technical team.
