High-flying Arrows glad for FIFA break

Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen says he is glad for FIFA’s international break as it allows him to work on his team, despite being second in the Premiership.

Arrows are undefeated in the league this season with four draws and three wins in their opening seven fixtures. As such, it was thought that continuing the good momentum might have been important to Larsen.

However, the 46-year-old believes the break is beneficial for his relatively small squad to recuperate and work on new things on the training ground as well.

He told the SowetanLIVE: “For me‚ the most important thing is getting those extra hours on the training field working on different areas we need to improve on. I still hear coaches complaining about the break but it’s part and parcel of what we do and we have to get on with business and work.”
