Speaking to FARPost, Johnson said describing his role as interim does not make sense, and he will fight for the season's remaining games.

Johnson said:

“Everybody thinks it’s interim, and there is no such thing as an interim coach. You take the team, and you work until the team doesn’t need you anymore. So, I’m doing the best I can as the coach and taking this brand of football to the best we can for the last games.”

While Johnson promised his side would fight during the season's remaining games, he was critical of his players after a recent 1-0 loss to Stellenbosch FC.

"We were told to 'respect the process'. But it seems like there is no process. With every game, it's like they are rolling a dice."

Praise Ngwekhulu says Chiefs are getting what they deserve:

"I don't feel sorry for them. They deserve this and more."

Seja P Baloyi is dumbfounded:

"We are in April, and just one win? One fela!"

Dumisani Lucania Corleone Hlatshwayo thinks Johnson should leave:

"He should pull himself out of the job first."

Shepherd D'banz UMlangeni says Johnson is to blame:

"Mr Chop and Changing. Ever since he arrived, he doesn't know his first 11. A biased coach indeed."
