Johnson: My longest stay without a job


Johnson parted ways with the Tshwane giants in August and has subsequently been without a club. He was previously linked to the vacant coaching job at AmaZulu but he has since denied the link.

Although he says he’s ready to make his comeback to the elite league, Johnson says there’s nothing finalised or concrete yet.

“Look, there’s nothing for now but my agent is busy organising something as we’ve received a number of offers – this is the longest stay but something will come up,” said Johnson.

“We’re still waiting to hear from the clubs who are interested and I can’t really say which clubs, because that’s not right. However, I’m available to become a coach again and that will happen as soon as I get response from the interested clubs.”

The former Platinum Stars mentor said this is the first time he’s been without a secure job in his coaching career.

“I worked at Ajax, moved to Mamelodi Sundowns, Platinum Stars and joined SuperSport United and this all happened in a short space of time,” added the 55-year-old.

“But these things happen in football, it happens to any coach in the world and I have learned during my stay - I hope to start on a better footing in my next project.”
