Golden Arrows coach Mushin Ertugral (left) welcomed Shaun Bartlett to the club as his new assistant coach yesterday.

The legendary former Bafana Bafana striker was introduced by the club yesterday. Bartlett was part of the South African national side that won the 1996 African Cup of Nations and he enjoyed a lengthy club career in Europe and at home before retiring in 2009.

In a statement released by the club, Bartlett’s experience was labelled as a major deciding factor in the club’s decision to pursue his services.

‘Bartlett will bring his extensive experience, spanning over 15 years of being involved in the beautiful game, to the team,’ the statement read. ‘The appointment is a welcome addition to the coaching team and it’s expected that his technical input will enable an exciting partnership and thus continue the exciting form shown this season.’
