Times to start bullying teams, says Kaizer Chiefs coach Cavin Johnson

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson wants his team to stop being “bullied” and start to assert themselves in the DStv Premiership.

Johnson has only been in charge of the team for a short time but has managed to steady the ship after a shaky start to the new season under former boss Molefi Ntseki.

Amakhosi have won four of their last five league games to move up to sixth on the league standings.

They are just six points adrift of second-placed SuperSport United, and 11 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Johnson said on iDiski Times: “You remember when the league started people were bullying Chiefs, and remember that’s the cloth I was talking about, we need to make sure we get to that level, and getting there is major, it will take us a while to get there.

“That is the cohesion you need to have in the team with the magnitude of Kaizer Chiefs, we spotted it, I see it as well, we need to get there [bullying] teams but to get there is difficult, like I said we were bullied at the start of the season.

“Now after three games, maybe the bullying is over, maybe we going to get more confident, based on what we do on the training pitch.”

Chiefs are next in action against Sekhukhune at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
