Cape Town - Clinton
Larsen says while high flyers Golden Arrows will remain humble, they
are not scared of any opposition in the Premier Soccer League.
After nine matches the Durban club are sitting second in the standings, just a point behind surprise leaders Baroka.
Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates occupy third and fourth, while the
likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits are
floundering further down the table, albeit that they have games in hand.
Larsen is determined that his side keeps their focus and do not get caught up in talk of challenging for the title.
"We are not obsessed about being on top of the log," he told KickOff.
"We are not obsessed with Q-innovation. But we are a young team trying
to improve all the time. I'm just trying to get this message across
because there's always talk about being top of the log."
The Abafana Bes'thende boss is wary of the threat of the traditional big guns but also feels his side are up for any challenge.
"Listen, [Sundowns coach] Pitso Mosimane said the other day the big boys are going to rise to the top, and he said it.
"We are small boys, we are a small team and we know that and we
behave that way. We will bow down to them off the field but on the field
we don't bow down to anybody. We respect anybody as I have said before
but we fear nobody."
Arrows next welcome the Buccaneers to the Princess Magogo Stadium in a Telkom Knockout round of 16 clash on Saturday.
Kick off is at 15:30.
