Larsen Responds To Royal AM Links

Magesi FC head coach Clinton Larsen has dismissed reports suggesting that he will leave the Motsepe Foundation Championship side for Royal AM.

Reports came out last week after AM suffered their fourth successive league loss away at SuperSport that the KwaZulu-Natal-based outfit’s management were considering the future of John Maduka and bringing in Larsen.

The reports were further fuelled by the fact that Larsen missed his side’s league match against Upington City, which they lost 2-0.

The coach, though, clarified to the media after Dikwena tṧa meetse’s 2-0 win over Marumo Gallants on Tuesday that he had a family emergency when his side lost to City and that he is not even considering leaving the Limpopo side, where he has good relations with everyone.

“Well there is nothing to talk about because I went home to see my family, my family had an emergency,” said Larsen.

“I went on Thursday and I came back yesterday. That’s just rumours we’ve got a very good relationship here with the management, myself and the players.

“I think if that was a destabilising factor, the team wouldn’t be performing the way it has been and we wouldn’t be getting the results and I don’t tolerate interference.

“So that was just a rumour it’s not true and I’d like to clear that fact.”  

Magesi are currently third on the Motsepe Foundation Championship log with 18 points from 10 matches, four points away from leaders Orbit College.
