Mngqithi linked with Larsen's job at Celtic

Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen believes he's the right man to continue, while the former Arrows coach is approached
Following a weekend full of drama with Bloemfontein Celtic catching a 4-0 hiding against Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout, coach Clinton Larsen's job is in question.

A source at Golden Arrows has revealed to Goal that their former coach Manqoba Mngqithi could surprise everyone by being announced as the new Celtic coach.

“Nothing has been signed yet, and until then things can still change. But, it is believed that he might be joining Celtic due to the fact that they meet his style of play which is using young players,” said the Goal source.

Meanwhile Larsen himself came out to defend his own ability to carry on at the helm.

“I know that I have not been getting the desired results, but I am a good coach and the management knows that. They know what I am capable of and where I have taken the club from,” Larsen told Vuma FM on Monday morning.

Speaking after their defeat, Larsen admitted that they were outclassed by Mamelodi Sundowns but that  his charges will seek to bounce back.

“It is very, very simple that we were totally outclassed by a very good team. The boys must dust themselves off now and keep soldiering on.  We were very average today and we got punished for that,” he said.

Larsen won the Telkom KO last season, so he might have a point that he requires time to improve their PSL record.
