Kaizer Chiefs’ stance on head coach Molefi Ntseki’s future may be publicly supportive, but behind the scenes, the club seems to be taking steps that could jeopardize his long-term position.
As reported by FarPost, they have allegedly brought in Cavin Johnson, the former assistant coach to Pitso Mosimane at Al Ahly, although his specific role is not yet clear.
This decision has not been officially announced, possibly because of their upcoming crucial match against Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 semifinal second leg, which hangs in the balance.
The outcome of this game could significantly influence Ntseki’s future.
Johnson, who had a successful stint at Al Ahly, has been advising Motsepe Championship side La Masia recently.
It’s worth noting that if Ntseki were to lose tomorrow’s match, especially by a large margin, it could make his position untenable.
Supporters’ dissatisfaction with the team’s poor performance has been palpable, which even led to a police escort for Ntseki in Polokwane.
It’s crucial to keep a close eye on developments within Chiefs, as the decision regarding Ntseki’s future could have far-reaching implications for the club.
The public statements supporting Ntseki may not tell the whole story, and the upcoming matches and performance will likely be key factors in determining the coach’s fate.
The 64-year old Johnson on the other hand is serial winner who showcased his coaching acumen during his time at the now-defunct Platinum Stars in the early 2010s.
