Bloemfontein Celtic director respects Larsen

Bloemfontein Celtic club technical director Mich D'Avray is dedicated to respecting and supporting his coach after a few months of highs and lows

The Celtic director told the club website that he has the utmost respect for young coach Clinton Larsen who managed to show signs of early success at the Bloemfontein club.

“I have the utmost respect for Clinton Larsen. I believe he is destined for a long and prosperous football career,” said D’Avray.

The club is now aiming at finishing in the top eight of the Premier Soccer League and to play in the MTN8 competition.

“The fact is that we snapped an eight year trophy drought and then reached the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup. This has really motivated the team for more success. Nothing breeds desire like victory,” he said.

The director also said that they would want to build on their status as a top five contender next season. Despite the challenges of being in a 'small' city they believe that with the right combination of savvy and experience they could surprise a lot of teams.

This seems to be an achievable goal as the club has done well in introducing youngsters and becoming a team that competes well with any other teams in the PSL.

“We have a young squad brimming with talent and we are slowly maturing into an experienced team with depth and real quality. We have to maintain our consistency, up our concentration and strive for glory,” he said.
