Johannesburg - SuperSport United coach Cavin Johnson has reportedly been axed from his SuperSport United role as head coach.

According to KickOff.com, Johnson had a meeting with club officials and agreed to leave his post after a dismal start to the 2014/15 PSL campaign.
SuperSport United currently find themselves in 14th position on the log after the opening four games, just one point better than the last placed side Amazulu.
Johnson was under severe pressure to deliver trophies to the club and with the side's poor start to the season, the United board may have made up their mind that Johnson is not the man capable of taking the team to the top.
Johnson was previously the coach of Platinum Stars before United lured him to Matsatsantsa after transforming Dikwena into a Cup winning side.
Following United’s 2-1 loss to Mpumalanga Black Aces, Sport24 revealed that Johnson had said his goodbyes to the players in the dressing-room.
It’s reported that Matsatsansta assistant coach Kwanele Kopo will be caretaker in the meantime as it is believed that Gordon Igesund is the front runner to be given the full-time job.
This news comes at a difficult time for the Matsatsansta who face high-flying Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa PSL clash on Saturday, August 30 at the FNB Stadium.
The match kicks-off at 20.15.
It remains unclear if Johnson will lead out the SuperSport United troops at this fixture.
If the reports are indeed true, do you think SuperSport were right to have fired Cavin Johnson who is only in his second year at the club?
