Word reaching the Siya crew is that Clinton Larsen is the odds-on favourite to land the Maritzburg United head coach job, following the resignation of Ernst Middendorp.
High ranking sources close to the Pietermaritzburg-based side have indicated that the club has identified Larsen, Boebie Solomons and Manqoba Mngqithi as potential candidates to take charge of the Team of Choice’s bench, with Larsen being touted as the favourite.
Larsen recently quit as Bloemfontein Celtic coach, following a poor start to the season, and could now be back at the club where he previously worked at, as an assistant to Gordon Igesund.
There has been no official confirmation from any of the respective parties involved in the potential deal, however Soccer-Laduma has it on good authority that the move could well happen sooner rather than later.
