SuperSport set to make final call on head coach


DStv Premiership side SuperSport United are set to make a final decision in a board meeting on Wednesday to decide the club's next coach with several candidates set to learn their fate.

Andre Arendse had been initially named as caretaker coach until the end of the season, with a shot at winning the job on a permanent basis.

Arendse faces stiff competition for the vacant position with the likes of Benni McCarthy, Cavin Johnson, Gavin Hunt, and the early favourite Fadlu Davids linked to the job.

One of the candidates, Cavin Johnson, said he was happy to be mentioned as a possible option.

"I don't know what's going to happen," Johnson tells KickOff.

"If my name is there, I don't know, I'm just happy to be associated with the job.

"We will just have to wait and see.

"To be a success at any football club, it depends on your philosophy and results, that's the bottom line."

Meanwhile, it is understood that Pitso Mosimane is keen for Johnson to join him in Qatar as an assistant should he seal a position as head coach.

The two worked together previously at Egyptian giants Al Ahly during Mosimane's first season.

Matsatsantsa CEO Stan Matthews could not be reached for comment.
