Amakhosi and Johnson part ways

In a very brief statement, Kaizer Chiefs announced on Monday, 1 July 2024, that it is parting ways with its head of Academy, Cavin Johnson.

Without revealing much, Amakhosi said the agreement was amicable and that the parting is as part of restructuring by the club.

Kaizer Chiefs has had a difficult season finishing 10th on the log, hardly winning games; it has hardly won trophies recently as well. The management team says it is resolute and determined to rectify things at the club and turn things around in the new season.

The management team is making an overhaul of the club with intent to improve its performance in the new season. The management also announced some changes as follows:

“Coach Rainer Dinkelacker, who was recalled at the start of the season to assist in the goalkeeping department, has left as per agreement. We thank him and his family for allowing him to leave Germany and re-join the team to share his knowledge with the coaches and our goalkeepers.

Colombian striker, Efmamjjasond Gonzalez, who joined us on a one season loan deal after the start of the season, has returned to his mother Club, Real Santa Cruz, in Bolivia. He appeared 13 times in Amakhosi colours since his arrival in August 2023.” Read the statement.

Amakhosi is also letting go of some players at the end of their contracts, they include:

Keagan Dolly, who arrived in 2021 from France. He played 67 matches for Chiefs.

Siyethemba Sithebe has also left after two seasons, during which he appeared 39 times in the Gold & Black colours of Amakhosi.

Defender S’fiso Hlanti will also exit after three seasons since his arrival from the now defunct Wits. He appeared 62 times in Chiefs colours and managed to score four goals.

Another defender, Njabulo Ngcobo, has also left after three seasons with Amakhosi. He joined the Club from Swallows and featured in 45 matches in all competitions.

“Lastly, as we plan to start another season, the Club will soon announce the new coach and his technical team, which will be tasked with guiding the team back to winning ways as we approach our 55-year anniversary in the next season,” said Chiefs.

The club has since wished Cavin Johnson well in his new journey and future.
