Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has warned new Kaizer Chiefs signing Enocent Mkhabela to be prepared for high expectations at the Soweto giants.

Johnson has high regard for Mkhabela, who he worked with during his time at Dikwena and SuperSport United.

The midfielder was unveiled by Chiefs in midweek alongside seven other new players as part of a major squad overhaul after they failed to win a single trophy last season.

"I worked with Mkhabela at Platinum Stars a few seasons ago and he was very good," Johnson told Soccer Laduma.

"He did a really good job for us and we really appreciate what he has done for the club. I also had him at SuperSport United and he's such a quality player that he can play at least three different positions.

"That's very good for him and his new club, Kaizer Chiefs, because of his versatility. He can play as a right back, centre back and central midfielder, so Chiefs have signed a very good player.

"I hope he can handle the crowd as this is the first really big team he's playing for now. The pressure and everything that comes with playing for big teams is different to what you experience at other teams. Having said that, I'm sure he will do well at Chiefs."
