Larsen’s Future Not Really Up To Me – Makhubela

Magesi FC chairman Solly Makhubela says it will be up to the club management and technical team, if Clinton Larsen stays on as the side’s head coach in the DStv Premiership next season.

This comes as Magesi secured automatic promotion to the topflight after beating Milford FC 3-1 in Polokwane, while their closest competitors University of Pretoria drew 2-2 with Black Leopards away from home to nullify chances of taking the title race to the wire.

Larsen is in his second season with the club after joining them last season and helping them finish in 12th position and he gained promotion in style this time around.  

The chairman told the media in Polokwane that his leadership style is that one where he listens to the technical team and management, which has brought them the promotion.

“As I have indicated that I’m a chairman but I’m not the one who is taking the decisions,” Makhubela told the media.

“The decision will be based on the management and the technical [team]. Therefore they need to decide whether it will be positive to take the coach and myself I’ll be like a moderator, I’ll assess it and I’ll look at it

“The mandate for this year was that we need to take the league and we need to get straight promotion not the play-offs.”

Makhubela also addressed questions how Magesi will celebrate their promotion to the top flight.

“Because of our culture in Moletji with the Chief we are planning to do that [celebrations], it’s not yet final but we will give you the date but there will be celebrations,” he added.
