Summerfield Dynamos FC coach Clinton Larsen has revealed the reason behind his surprise move to a team playing in the ABC Motsepe KwaZulu Natal League.
The former Golden Arrows coach was unveiled as a coach for the Chatsworth-based side earlier this month, who finished fifth on stream A of the KZN ABC Motsepe League.
Larsen told FARPost that he wanted to be close to his family after his former club Bizana Pondo Chiefs got relegated to the ABC Motsepe League in Eastern Cape.
“After my stint with Bizana I got a call from the chairman of the club (Collin Naidoo) and he asked me if I’d be interested. So we sat and we spoke,” said Larsen.
“It’s an exciting project you know, I was looking for an opportunity to stay at home with my family, I’ve been traveling a lot in the last few years.
“So this (coaching Summerfield Dynamos FC) gave me an opportunity to do that, a very talented team, two years ago they were in the national play-offs,” he said.
“It’s a project that gives everybody an opportunity to grow and try to promote this team. You know I played most of my career in Chatsworth with Manning Rangers.
“This is a similar project with a team in the ABC Motsepe League, trying to get to the next division and hopefully up to the PSL. To be part of it is an exciting opportunity,” added Larsen.
