Cape Town - New Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen says he left former club Bloemfontein Celtic on good terms and has no qualms with owner Max Tshabalala after walking out on him last month.

The 44-year-old resigned as Siwelele head coach after he was told to bring someone he did not want onto his coaching staff.

"I didn't have any problems with any of my chairmen in the past," Larsen said.

"I didn't have a problem with Max Tshabalala at Celtic.

"There was one issue with regards to my assistant coach and that resulted in me resigning -there was never interference, I left on good terms and it was the same with the Augousti's before him."

Larsen has since been appointed Abafana Bes'thende boss and joins a club famous for hiring and firing coaches. Club owner Mato Madlala is thought to be a difficult boss to please, although Larsen foresees no problems.

"Every coach has a different way of dealing with people, so I don't foresee any problems," he added. "I've known the chairlady for quite a while.

"I'm not the type of coach to rub people up the wrong way, I'm very diplomatic and open in my approach and it will be the same with my new chairman."

Larsen will take charge of Arrows for the first time next Saturday when they host Polokwane City in Durban.
