Cape Town - Golden Arrows have parted ways with head coach
Clinton Larsen following a run of just two wins in their last 16 games in all
Arrows looked to have turned the corner after ending their
winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs at the start of December
and a 2-2 draw with league leaders Bidvest Wits almost two weeks later.
However, the year ended on a sour note for Abafana
Bes'thende as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Durban rivals AmaZulu at
King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium.
"Lamontville Golden Arrows would like to announce that
we have parted ways with head Coach Clinton Larsen‚ by mutual agreement between
both parties‚" read a statement on the club's official website.
"After careful consideration‚ both the club and Clinton
agree that this is in the best interest of both parties for the relationship to
end with immediate effect.
"Clinton has been totally professional in his approach
to his work and in parting ways‚ we wish him all the best for his future.
"Clinton responded‚ by sincerely thanking the
Chairlady‚ management‚ technical staff and players at the club‚ for the time
that he spent at the helm of a young and exciting team and wished them well for
the rest of the season."
Next up for Arrows is a Premiership clash with Maritzburg
United at Princess Magogo Stadium on 6 January.
