Johnson joined Dikwena in March this year with the club in a precarious position in the Premiership.

However, immediately after he took charge, they went on a six-game unbeaten run to move them out of trouble.

Platinum Stars eventually finished the season in 11th place, seven points clear of the drop zone.

Johnson was happy to avoid relegation, but made it clear he intends the club to competing at the other end of the table from here on in.

This is the 56-year-old's second stint in charge of the club - he led Stars to second place in the 2012/13 season and intends to get them back there.

"We have discussed the plans for next season with the management, but once we have finalised everything we will let everyone know - that should happen in the next three weeks or so," he told KickOff.

"The team has taken a backseat and we need to fix that. We need to set the bar again and get the club where it belongs, which is to challenge for titles."
