Coach Takes Responsibility For Poor Results, Prepares For Bucs

Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen has said that he is taking full responsibility for the team’s disappointing results so far in the 2018/19 season. 

Following their 0-0 draw with Chippa United on the weekend, Abafana Bes’thende are 12th on the PSL log with one win from seven matches.

The KwaZulu-Natal outfit has had three draws and three losses and only six points have been collected from a possible 21.

In their next match, Larsen and the team are scheduled to travel to Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on October 03.

“Two points dropped at home feels like a loss. Again we dominated but failed to break the deadlock. Credit to the players for the enthusiasm and energy with which they approached this game,” said Larsen after the Chippa match as quoted on the club’s official website.

“Being the 3rd game in 7days we still ran tirelessly until the final whistle. Credit too must go to our fitness trainer Pedro Picarro for a great job in not only conditioning the team the way he has but also for getting us to recover in time to compete again. As the head coach, I take full responsibility for the poor results we’ve had of late,” added the coach.

Meanwhile, Pirates have been enjoying impressive form of late, as the team has scored in all of their last four matches, accumulating a total of nine goals in four matches.

The Buccaneers beat Black Leopards 2-1 and SuperSport United 3-1; drew 2-2 with Cape Town City and won 2-1 in their most recent match against Baroka FC to move to the top of the PSL log.
