Backroom plays a big role - Johnson



Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has paid tribute to his backroom staff for the role they have played in helping the club to climb the Premier Soccer League standings and put themselves in line for the league and double this season.

Johnson says he has among the best medical and fitness teams in the country, who have played a major part in helping the club to second place in the league standings and a berth in the Nedbank Cup semifinals. “I probably have one of the best fitness and medical personnel behind me,” he said.

“We have a bunch of enthusiastic young people who have been given the reigns to do what they do best and to teach the players that if they want to go far in their career they have work on their bodies. There is a certain way to handle nutrition and a certain mentality we are trying to grow in the club around professionalism.

“They have to take lots of credit because I’ve taught them how to combine their skills and specialities with the tactical and technical side of football and make it all come together. When you see your team at this stage of the season without a singe muscle pull or groin injury. I have 28 players and they are all fit and healthy. For me that is a big plus and they have to get the credit for that.”
