The former Platinum Stars, SuperSport United and AmaZulu coach marked his debut with a bland 2-1 loss to Golden Arrows in Hammersdale last weekend, before impressing with a 3-2 win over Cape Town Spurs on Wednesday.

Does Johnson have his eye on the permanent job?

“It is something that appeals to me,” Johnson said as quoted by iDiskiTimes.

“But there is something bigger that appeals to me at Kaizer Chiefs. I’ve been to some of the biggest teams in the world and I have worked with one of the biggest teams [Al Ahly] in the world.

“And when I say this team [Chiefs] has got that potential and I think you need to bring from a bigger team and put it in this team but not as a head coach.

“The head coach will always be changed in any club. But I feel that this team is not where is supposed to be and maybe with the little knowledge that I have, I think this team can be as big as it should be,” he added.


Meanwhile, Diski Times recently revealed a list of four targets as possible coaches at Naturena next season.

A Spaniard named Raul Caneda leads the summit in the top four targets.

Caneda is followed by the great Pitso Mosimane, who is not enjoying a great time with Al-Wahda in the UAE (one win in four games).
