Cape Town - Clinton Larsen has revealed his reasons for opting to part ways with Free State club, Bloemfontein Celtic.

According to KickOff, Larsen says that Phunya Sele Sele demanded that he change his assistant coach and replace him with a coach from Celtic’s development department.

“There are two things that led to my resignation,” Larsen said.

“The first one was results. We started very well so we did not win any of our last six matches and the club was concerned about poor results. So I was given an ultimatum to change an assistant coach or resign and I chose to resign.

“The club wanted to take a coach from development and make him my assistant coach while taking my assistant coach to the development and I was not going to allow that to happen.

“But whoever takes over as the coach will take over a very stable side because we have laid a very good foundation.”

Celtic are currently sixth on the Absa Premiership table with 16 points from 11 games, some 10 points adrift of leaders Bidvest Wits.
