Cape Town - Golden Arrows owner Mato Madlala has given no assurances that Shaun Bartlett will be retained as first-team coach next season.

After Abafana Bes'thende's relegation to the National First Division in 2013/14, Bartlett returned the club to the top flight of South African football in his first full season in charge.

However, it is not a certainty that Bartlett will be given a new contract, with his current deal expiring at the end of the month.

"We haven't discussed anything for now. I can't say yes or no," Madlala is quoted as saying by KickOff.

The club boss allegedly got defensive when journalists probed for further comment on the contract matter.

He responded: "Are you negotiating for Shaun now? Shaun and I have a good relationship. I don't think he needs one of you to negotiate for him.

"We have a fantastic relationship and as he said, he wanted to finish the season and we are going to sit down and talk."
