Larsen: What I don't like about fellow coaches


Former Golden Arrows and Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Clinton Larsen has revealed the reason he is not currently coaching in the Premier Soccer League.

The 50-year-old last led a team in the DStv Premiership back in 2020 when he got relegated with Polokwane City.

Larsen remained uncertain when asked when it would be likely that he would return to the South African top-flight.

"I don't know, I can't say," Larsen tells

"I don't phone for jobs so I can't say I'm going back to the PSL. It's up to the clubs. I got an offer two days ago from an NFD team.

So it's my decision if I want to go back to a higher level or not.

"I don't understand individuals who phone around and seek jobs at clubs where a head coach is doing badly.

"They see a colleague is struggling, they start to phone the owners and say 'hey I'm available if you fire your coach' that's is not right.

"That is not professional etiquette. So I don't do such things.

"I think all the serious clubs in the league know which coaches are available. So they will call you if they need you it's as simple as that.

"Some coaches will choose where they want to work, like I said in the last three months I had three offers in the NFD which I didn't feel suited me.

"I've decided to stay with the project I'm running here. and I'm very happy where I am at the moment."

Larsen spent the 2020/21 season in the GladAfrica Championship with Bizana Pondo Chiefs as a coach but was relegated to the ABC Motsepe League.

"I'm at home coaching an ABC Motsepe League team, Summerfield Dynamos in KZN, it's a team from Chatsworth. So Chatsworth Stadium is our home ground."
