Johnson wants Mahamutsa at Leopards


Cavin Johnson has made it clear that he would love to see tough as nails defender Rooi Mahamutsa at Black Leopards.

“Mahamutsa? No well the chairman hasn’t decided yet what is happening with Mahamutsa,” Johnson said.

The 38-year-old old former Orlando Pirates star is currently without a club as he last played professional football while still on the books of Free State Stars back in 2017.

“We’ll have to see what’s happening. He stopped training ja, he stopped I think it was on Friday… just before we played Kaizer Chiefs. He was there for a few days, maybe for three or four days he was there. But you know Mahamutsa is not someone that you keep on trial you just need to see if he’s just fit…so the chairman (still) has to decide.”

Asked whether he was impressed with Mahamutsa during his assessment was last week, Johnson said, “He was okay, he was fit as normal. He’s a clean boy in things like that. He impressed me; no, he has always impressed me hey. He’s always been a good player; we’ll see if we are going to accommodate him yes or no,” added the Leopards head coach.

Mahamusta was last seen in action for Villa Marseille during the Discovery Walter Sisulu Soccer Challenge in December in Soweto, Klipspruit.

Johnson also gave an update on Mokgakolodi Ngele’s injury.

The 29-year-old Botswana international pulled a hamstring on Saturday against Kaizer Chiefs and left the field prematurely.

“Well we don’t yet… he’s been to the doctor this morning; we are just waiting for him to come back. We don’t know how bad it is yet huh. It didn’t look too good, but we have to wait and see what the doctor said. He hasn’t comeback yet with the results yet, I’m waiting for the doctor to call me,” concluded Johnson.
