Cape Town - Cavin Johnson has confirmed that he has been sacked as head coach of Black Leopards.

Johnson had only been appointed as Lidoda Duvha head coach on 29 December but was suspended by the Limpopo club last month after a string of poor results.

The former AmaZulu mentor has now been relieved of his duties, although Leopards have not yet officially confirmed the news.

Johnson told KickOff: "Ja well, they will confirm it hey. They will confirm it. I'm sure they will say something in the paper.

"We will have to wait and see what happens hey.

"My agent has to go out and work a little bit and see if he can find me another job."

Johnson said he is already on the lookout for a new team, but only if it is the right for him.

He added: "Yeah, we will talk (if there's an interested team) if the conditions are okay and everything is fine then we will look at it. I'm available. It depends on a lot of things.

"It depends on what's happening in that team, how we are going to work, and there's a lot of clubs you come, then look at it and say, 'once bitten twice shy' hey."

Johnson has been replaced at Leopards, on an interim basis, by Allan Clark who has already won two games, in both the league and Nedbank Cup.
