Cavin Johnson Joins Jingles in Egypt
Former Black Leopards coach Cavin Johnson is joining Al Ahly’s technical team as coach Pitso Mosimane’s assistant. Johnson has managed various teams in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) including Platinum Stars, SuperSport United & AmaZulu. He also holds a CAF Licence, SAFA Pro Licence and a sports management diploma and will work alongside fitness trainer Kabelo Rangoaga and performance analyst Musi Matlaba in Mosimane’s backroom staff.
Johnson has already flown out to Cairo, but spoke to the SL Podcast from the airport before his departure. He breaks down the move, stating that the decision to take the opportunity did not need a second thought, stating “He didn’t even have to call me, he could’ve asked in a voice note and I would’ve said yes”. All eyes will be on Al Ahly on October 17, when they take on Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League semi-finals, hoping to earn their ninth title in the competition. In the full podcast, Johnson discusses the challenge of competing at this level and how his PSL experience has prepared him for the task.

Issue #1169 - Billiat appreciates Ntshangase, but is that enough?
When Siphelele Ntshangase joined Kaizer Chiefs, many felt that the Soweto giants had found a playmaker and personality in a similar mould to the likes of Doctor Khumalo, Jabu Pule (now Mahlangu) and the late Scara Ngobese. Ntshangase could not have been happier when he joined from Baroka FC, describing this as a dream move. However, It’s all gone south despite what appeared a bright start. And while players and fans alike love the exciting and entertaining pass technician, the destiny of this player seems in the hands Ernst Middendorp who as yet has not been convinced.
