A iDiski Times source said Johnson, who is still eyeing a CAF Champions League spot, will stay at the club next season but will no longer be the coach of the senior team.

The source said:

"Having worked with youth before, Johnson will have a chance to continue doing so when he returns to the role he was originally appointed for."
