With time running out in their search for a coach from overseas, indications are that Polokwane City could settle for local mentor to take charge of the team for the second round of the season.
Rise and Shine are struggling with loss of form, with the team having lost eight matches in succession.
Even after parting ways with Serbian coach Zlatko Krmpotic last month, and appointed Bernard Molekwa on caretaker basis, positive results have continued to elude the Limpopo outfit.
Patrick Aussems – the Belgian coach who has been linked with Polokwane – has reportedly ruled himself outfit of the running for the position at the club.
Indications are that Rise and Shine is keen on appointing former Chippa United coach Clinton Larsen for the second round of the campaign.
Larsen has been unattached since parting ways with the Chilli Boys in September.
“It’s likely (that Larsen would be Polokwane City’s new coach). The chairman (Johnny Mogaladi) likes him. He is one of the local coaches he likes and it's likely to happen,” said the source.
Attempts have been made to get a comment from Polokwane CEO Tincy Tema, however, the club official wasn’t immediately available as his phone rang unanswered.
