Kaizer Chiefs legend Lucas Radebe has cast serious doubt on interim coach Cavin Johnson’s ability to lead the club back to its former glory.

Cavin Johnson was roped in on Monday as an interim coach, but Radebe has questioned the experience and credentials.

Radebe is of the view that Johnson doesn’t have the needed experience to coach a big team such as Chiefs, insinuating that his former club might have made the wrong appointment once again.

Johnson replaced Molefi Ntseki, who was deemed a ‘mismatch’ as he lacked the ability and experience to lead Chiefs, according to Radebe. The ex-Chiefs captain, Radebe expressed uncertainty about the club’s decision to appoint Johnson as interim coach.

 “To be honest, I’m not sure anymore because this is a big brand, and there are a lot of expectations for the club,” said Radebe when asked if Johnson is the right coach to lead Chiefs to their back to their glory days.

Radebe was addressing the media during the UEFA Europa League trophy showcase in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, on Thursday.

“I think everybody knows that it’s a massive club that needs a big push. It needs a character and attitude to get back to that level again,” added Radebe.

The Leeds United and Bafana Bafana legend is unhappy and stated that he is disappointed at the rate at which the club has sacked coaches in recent years.

Kaizer Chiefs showed Ntseki the exit door at Naturena after the Carling Knockout Cup defeat to AmaZulu in the Last 16 at the weekend. He left the club in ninth place in the DStv Premiership table with three wins from nine matches.

“It’s a pity, especially as a coach and as a manager, you know you are being judged by results, and obviously, the results have not been coming,” added the ex-defender.

“It doesn’t matter if you want to build-up or how much time you need to get the team to the level that everybody can be happy. But it is hard and unfortunately, that’s what happens in the game of football.

“You learn, surely it’s a big disappointment because you don’t want to see inconsistency to the team, especially bringing in and out managers like that. It takes a while to steady the team.”
