Why Larsen turned down PSL offer


Clinton Larsen says he recently turned down a head coach position offered to him by a DStv Premiership club.

The former Orlando Pirates and Manning Rangers winger has been without a coaching job since leaving Polokwane City in September last year.

Following Rise & Shine's relegation to the GladAfrica Championship last season, the club management wanted to adjust his contract but the two parties could not reach an agreement.

It is believed the likes of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila approached Larsen for his services but nothing materialised from the negotiations.

"I'm still at home running our family business, looking after my family," a relaxed Larsen tells KickOff.com.

"At the moment... ja let's wait and see hey. I did have an offer about five, six weeks ago from a PSL team, but the conditions were not right at the time so I declined the offer.

"But ja, like I said before you know, I feel the conditions must be right now for me to join a team. At the time the team asked me to come on board, I didn't feel that the conditions were right, so I declined."

Pressed further to reveal the name of the team, Larsen says: "I also can't say that, out of respect for the club and the coach that's there I can't, I can't say.

"I can just tell you it's a team in the PSL, in the bottom half of the PSL, that's all I can tell you."
