Larsen: Arrows' Ajax reject will 'shock' the league

Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen is confident that he can unlock Zimbabwean striker Thomas Chideu's true potential.

The 20-year-old spent two seasons at Ajax after signing from Zimbabwe giants Highlanders in 2015, but made only two substitute appearances for the Cape Town side’s first team.

Chideu left Ajax at the end of August and after training for a couple of weeks with Arrows, was signed by the Durban club.

With Lerato Lamola and Knox Mutizwa doing the business up front for an Arrows side occupying second position on the standings, Chideu is yet to feature this season.

But Larsen is confident the young marksman is going to prove a hit over the course of the season.

"We have been always on the lookout for a striker of his calibre," he told the SowetanLIVE website.

"He is a big imposing player, which is something we did not have in the team. He brings a different dimension and he will give us more options when we attack.

"You cannot judge someone who was not given a chance. I will give him a chance and people will be shocked because I am confident that he is one of the best strikers in the league," added Larsen, who was recently named the Premiership Coach of the Month for August/September.
