Promising Signs for Mashiane and Radebe
The appointment of Cavin Johnson as the interim coach for Kaizer Chiefs has sparked anticipation regarding potential improvements in the performance of players like Happy Mashiane and Sabelo Radebe.
In a recent match against Moroka Swallows, 25-year-old left-back Mashiane had a rare appearance, contributing to the team’s 1-0 victory.

Johnson sees a bright future for both Mashiane and Radebe, emphasizing the importance of them asserting themselves on the field.
He encouraged them to elevate their performance, considering their experience and the need to contribute more actively to the team.
Transitioning Beyond Subservience
Addressing their age and experience, Johnson remarked, “They are not that young anymore.
They have to put up a hand a bit higher and not be subservient to the other guys.”
This statement suggests a shift in expectations for Mashiane and Radebe, indicating a call for them to take on more significant roles within the team and assert themselves as key contributors.
Challenges and Opportunities Ahead
As Johnson prepares Kaizer Chiefs for their upcoming fixture against Polokwane City, the focus on Mashiane and Radebe’s potential contributions adds an intriguing dimension to the team dynamics.
