Cape Town - Shaun Bartlett has been roped in to assist Owen Da Gama with the South African Under-23 football team.

The former Bafana Bafana striker, who coached Golden Arrows last season, will be a welcome addition to the national set-up.

Bartlett was unceremoniously dumped by Arrows at the end of the season, despite leading them to promotion when they won the National First Division in his first full season as head coach.

The former Charlton Athletic striker joined Arrows as Muhsin Ertugral’s assistant in 2012, and took over the coaching reigns after the team was relegated that season.

South Africa take on their Zimbabwean counterparts later this month, with the intent of qualifying for the CAF U23 Championships, where the top three sides will qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio.
