South Africa: Shaun Barlett gets first opportunity to coach
The former Bafana Bafana international striker has played for English side, Charlton, for six years before traveling back home to end his career with Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic.
As a Bafana Bafana, he played 74 games and scored 28 times making him the second all-time highest goal scorer after Beni Mc Carthy.
At Arrows, Barlett will be assisting Turkish coach Mushin Ertugral and it is hoped that he will combine ideas with the head coach to move Arrows at least a few places upwards on the League table as they are 11th placed with only four games to go.
A statement posted on Arrows’ web sites indicates they are happy to integrate the 1998 World Cup Bafana forward in their technical bench.
"His appointment is a welcome addition to Golden Arrows’ coaching team." "It’s expected that his technical input will enable an exciting partnership, and thus continue, the exciting form shown this season," the website added.
