Supersport United end its Hunt for new coach

SUPERSPORT United yesterday unveiled Cavin Johnson as their new coach, confirming the worst-kept secret in domestic football.

Johnson, penned a three-year deal with the Tshwane outfit, ending speculation over the vacant coaching post.

The former Platinum Stars coach has long been linked with United after the position became vacant, following the departure of Gavin Hunt three weeks ago.

And though there are still kinks to be ironed out with Stars, who still maintain he is their coach, United insisted they have done everything above board and that Johnson will be having his first training with the team on Monday.

"I'm happy to have joined United, and I believe we can achieve great things," said Johnson.

"I'm up for the challenge."

United chairman Khulu Sibiya said: "We are thrilled to welcome Cavin - one of the most exciting coaches in the country - while we continue with our policy of hiring local coaches."

This is now your chance to win the league Mr. Johnson. You almost did it with very low-key players. Now you are going to have good players at your disposal.

As much as it is a good move for the Coach to have moved to a "bigger" club, it said to see "smaller clubs loosing their coach. Well it is easy for teams to terminate coaches contracts but the opposite must not be true, with all due respect to the coaches. Owen Da Gama was doing well with P Stars and he left for Pirates, things didn't work out, Graig Rosely left Ajax and went join Pirates, things didn't work out. it would be nicer for our coaches to continue doing a good job with their clubs for continuity and loyalty. Good luck to Mr Johnson

Gudluck sir! But i think it would have been better to stay with the club(P Stars) atleast for one more season to improve /build on what you have than to go and start from scratch. Chances were high that you could win the league.
