Cape Town - Chippa United coach Clinton Larsen
insists he will not "get emotional" when they host his former side
Golden Arrows at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday.
Larsen departed Arrows in December and is now in charge of the Chilli
Boys where he has immediately stamped his authority as they are
unbeaten in six games.
The now 48-year-old Larsen, of course, is no stranger to battling his
previous teams in the PSL as he also managed Bloemfontein Celtic and
Larsen said in quotes published on the IOL website: "It is
going to be business as usual for me. I don't get emotional, not at all.
I've done it before against Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United.
"We are unbeaten in the last six matches since I took over. We want to build the momentum and keep the winning form.
"We are playing a good team in Arrows. I know some of their players'
strengths and weaknesses. But our preparations are normal. The fact that
I was with Arrows doesn't make our job easier."
Larsen also explained Chippa's upturn in fortunes since he took over from Joel Masutha as coach.
He said that the Chilli Boys are now playing with more confidence and they are being more decisive when in the opposition's box.
Larsen continued: "When I arrived, we were slow in our build up. We
never really had too many box entries. I've changed that. We are now
penetrative and decisive in the opposition area.
"We have improved in our offensive play. We are also defending from the front."
