Black Leopards have hired Cavin Johnson as their new head coach. Lidoda Duvha have been quick to make their decision as they hired Johnson just two days after Luc Eymael tendered his resignation at the Absa Premier Soccer League club.
Leopards’ chairman David Thidiela confirmed the appointment.
The former Platinum Stars‚ SuperSport United and AmaZulu coach Johnson’s looks to steer the eleventh-placed Limpopo club to safety as they are currently in the relegation mix.
“It’s a pleasure to be here. I think the team has got a good history, a good group of players. It’s not about why Leopards, it’s about understanding football and hopefully, I can add value to the Limpopo province.”
“I have never worked in the province before, it’s a nice challenge. If I can turn it around and hopefully the gods of football are on my side, then we will do that.” said Johnson in an interview with the media.
They return from the Absa Premiership’s Christmas break with their fixture on Sunday against Highlands Park at Makhulong Stadium.
