Larsen Explains United Axing

Former Maritzburg United coach, Clinton Larsen, has revealed some of the circumstances why he was relieved of his duties at the club. The 43-year-old endured a tough time in charge of the Team of Choice after only picking up a total of five points from a possible 27.

 

It was later revealed by United that a decision had been taken by the club's board to relieve Larsen before his last game in charge against Mamelodi Sundowns on December 20. Nonetheless, the Durban-born coach maintained a professional approach and almost led Maritzburg to a surprise win over the Brazilians. 

However, just a few weeks after his departure, Larsen feels he was perhaps let go just as things were starting to come together for himself and the club. He told the Siya crew, "It was shame it happened when it did because we had a feeling things were starting to come together. Look, I'm meeting with my agent today to map out my future so I'm looking forward already."

He added, "It was never ideal knowing I was leaving before the Downs game. But I respect their decision and I've really learnt a lot. I think the most frustrating part was all the injuries we had to contend with. I mean even against Downs we had four of five injuries to key players. There were times we drew games we should've won and lost games we should've drawn. As a coach you will always be in the firing line if the results aren't coming, you know."
