KZN clubs prep for next cam­paign

The New Age (Free State) - - SPORT - LINDA XIMBA

AF­TER se­cur­ing PSL top eight fin­ishes, Golden Ar­rows and Mar­itzburg United have be­gun prepa­ra­tions for next sea­son.

Ar­rows, who made up for last cam­paign’s miss, have en­gaged Bid­vest Wits over the re­lease of striker Knox Mu­tizwa.

The Zim­bab­wean has been a marvel to watch for Ar­rows since join­ing on loan from Wits in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow. He scored five goals in 14 matches, prompt­ing coach Clin­ton Larsen to re­quest his re­turn.

“He has made a pos­i­tive im­pact in a very short space of time and I’m very happy for him. He’s got to go back to his club and spend pre-sea­son and we’ll wait and see what Wits’ plans are for him,” Larsen said.

Mar­itzburg are pre­par­ing for life with­out Evans Rusike, who was pre­vi­ously linked with a move away af­ter a strong fin­ish to the 2014-15 sea­son.

“The club has re­ceived good of­fers for Evans and it’s a mat­ter of time be­fore they sell him. The club wants to ben­e­fit out of the trans­fer,” a source said.
