Bartman To Return To Playing?

News reaching the Siya crew is that Maritzburg United goalkeeper coach, Arthur Bartman, has left the club to join Golden Arrows instead. The former Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper called time on his playing days last season to take up a new role as goalkeeper coach at the Team of Choice last July.

However, it now seems he's opted to take on a new challenge with Golden Arrows. Interestingly, United's Chairman Farouk Kadodia, has hinted the 41-year-old may in fact be seeking a return to playing action after accepting the offer to join Mark Harrison's struggling outfit. It's thought that Bartman's experience may help Arrows who have struggled defensively and in goal in recent times.

Kadodia told the club's official website, "It is with great disappointment that the club confirm the resignation of Arthur Bartman from his post as the goalkeeper coach."

He added, "Arthur was poached by Golden Arrows before the Christmas break. It is believed that he will return to playing. The club further expresses it's disappointment in the manner in which its technical staff have been poached in the last six months."

Soccer-Laduma attempted to call Bartman to confirm his intention to return to playing, however we were unable to reach him at the time of running this story. The crew will monitor Bartman's situation closely.
