Mngqithi quits Golden Arrows


The 42-year-old steps down in the wake of a 3-2 victory over Bidvest Wits in a Telkom Knockout last-16 tie on Friday night.

Abafana Besthende are 13th in the League standings with four points from six games.

Mngqithi said on Arrows' official website: "The current situation is not through lack of trying or anything like that.

"When results are not forthcoming it becomes a situation which one needs to be realistic about it, and make decisions which are for the good of the entire club.

"Sometimes a change can have a positive effect and change the fortunes of a club. This is a club which has great potential and I believe it is only a question of time before things improve.

"I have enjoyed my time here and worked well with the management and the players. 

"It is always difficult to make decisions such as these but I honestly believe I am acting in the best interests of everyone here and I know that there is appreciation for the fact that I have put the interests of the club first."

Mngqithi is the second PSL manager to vacate his post this season following Duncan Lechesa's departure from Polokwane City midway through September.
