    Johnson has already spoken about the position. In an interview with Goal on Monday, the former AmaZulu coach said he hasn't been approached by anyone at Cape Town City as he's busy keeping himself up to date with the trends of coaching around the world. However, he was one of the first coaches to be linked with the job at City.

    Manousakis understands the culture of the team better as he has been with Cape Town City for a while now. He has been given the job to the lead side as the management continues their search for a permanent coach but could he be the right man to lead the Mother City-based outfit? How City perform during this period could be a determining factor on whether or not he should be given the job on a permanent basis.
