Bartlett Proving His Worth

Golden Arrows are a point away from being crowned the NFD champions and one man who deserves credit is their head coach, Shaun Bartlett. 

There's a Ghanaian proverb that goes ‘An army of sheep led by a lion can defeat an army of lions led by a sheep’. And this proverb amplifies the crucial role played by the leader that is Bartlett.

Golden Arrows were a depleted side following the mass exodus of players which took place after the Durban-based outfit were relegated to the National First Division. And therefore the leadership qualities of Bartlett were vital in instilling confidence in a relatively young Arrows side. 

It would also be unfair not to mention the influence of Bartlett's right hand man, Bheka Phakathi. 

The former Arrows player was a key figure in the Abafana Bes'tende team which won promotion in the 1999/2000 season, so he knows exactly what it takes to win promotion.

Roping in his former Kaizer Chiefs strike partner, Mabhudi Khenyeza, has also yielded positive results for Bartlett as the former has scored crucial goals for Arrows.

What do you make of Bartlett's coaching ability, is he one for the future?
