What Magesi FC duo make of Clinton Larsen as coach

Magesi FC duo has shed light on what they make of the club’s head coach, Clinton Larsen, as they are fighting for automatic promotion to the DStv Premiership.

The Limpopo club currently sit top of the table in the Motsepe Foundation Championship with 39 points, just a point ahead of second-placed AmaTuks. Both teams have each played 21 games thus far.

Magesi will be hoping to hold on to their fine form when they return to action after the FIFA international break.

FARPost caught up with the club’s duo of Wonderboy Makhubu and Edmore Chirambadare to find out what they think of their mentor, Larsen.


Makhubu has expressed how coach Larsen has made him settle well at the club, and how he fosters a sense of togetherness within the team.

“Well, it’s my first time working with him. The moment I came here I already felt at home under his guidance,” Makhubu told this publication.

“I think he is really a good coach because he is fair. If you are really performing, he will give you a chance as long as you are deserving.

“The way he manages the squad is one thing that makes the team tick. I think one that makes us gel is that everyone is happy within the team because of his support. The spirit is very high for both who are playing and not playing.”


The former Kaizer Chiefs striker Chirambadare commended coach Larsen’s extensive experience, divulging what the coach told him upon his arrival at the club.

“You know, my brother, the coach, has been in football for quite some time, and I have been in football for a long time now, so he knows me, and I know him,” Chirambadare added.

“He has been coaching big teams in South Africa, both in the DStv Premiership and Motsepe Foundation Championship. So, when I arrived at the club, he told me that I should do what a striker does. He told me that he knows my capabilities, so I should go out there and do my best, and God will take care of the rest.”
