“It gives me great pleasure to announce that coach Cavin Johnson has agreed to join me as an assistant coach at Al Ahly,” Mosimane wrote.
“This completes the technical team I bring with me to the Red Devils after fitness trainer Kabelo Rangoaga and performance analyst Musi Matlaba,”

“It’s an honour to be joining one of the most successful coaches in South Africa to coach the most successful club in Africa,” Johnson said with happiness.
