Durban - Following his departure from Golden Arrows on Saturday, head coach Manqoba Mngqithi has been linked with a possible move to newly promoted PSL strugglers Polokwane City.

Mngqithi shocked by resigning as Abafana Bes'thende mentor after a thrilling 3-2 victory over Wits in the opening round of the Telkom Knockout at the Bidvest Stadium on Friday night.

A source close to the 42-year-old tactician revealed to the GOAL.com website that Polokwane could be his next destination due to the fact that the “Rookies” are still without a coach since the departure of Duncan Lechesa last month.

“Yes, he might be joining Polokwane City, but that was not the main motive as to why he resigned,” the source told goal.com.

“As you know that Mngqithi is not the kind of man who would just pack his bags like that.

“The truth is, he was unhappy at Arrows and this is not something new as he has been persevering for some time.”

Former Santos and Mpumalanga Black Aces coach, Mark Harrison, has been named to take over at Arrows.
