Official: Bartlett Bounces Back In New PSL Job

Shaun Bartlett has bounced back at a new club in the Premier Soccer League after leaving TS Galaxy recently.

According to reliable Siya sources, the former Bafana Bafana striker was the front runner to take over at Cape Town Spurs, news that the club has since confirmed. 

The Mother City outfit sacked Dylan Deane a week ago following his side’s humiliating 6-1 drubbing when they faced Pretoria Callies in the GladAfrica Championship, leaving them second from bottom of the table at the time.

Deane was appointed in April this year and helped them avoid dropping down to the amateur ranks of the ABC Motsepe League, but he was immediately sacked last week and the club statement adding that his replacement would be confirmed in due course.

The club has since announced the appointment of Bartlett, although there were suggestions that a list of other candidates was being considered. Clinton Larsen was one of them. 

The Siya reported two weeks ago that Bartlett had asked to leave TS Galaxy as he felt his role was being “lessened” following the arrival of new coach Sead Ramovic and his assistant-cum-technical director, Mensur Dogan.

Galaxy had appointed them not long after parting ways with Owen da Gama due to the poor results that had left The Rockets winless and also at the bottom of the DStv Premiership standings at the time.

And they haven’t moved an inch since Ramovic arrived.

Indications are that Cape Town Spurs were in talks with Bartlett to take over as they wanted his leadership for the remaining 21 games of the season.

He does have experience as head coach in the lower division, having been at the University of Pretoria and Golden Arrows a few years ago.
