The Phunya Sele Sele coach was fined R50 000, which is wholly suspended, while the club received a R25 000 fine, also suspended, for bringing Safa and the PSL into disrepute. This follows Larsen’s outburst directed at referee Daniel Volgraaf at half time in their 3-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Celtic’s neighbour, Free State Stars, received a similar sanction along with coach Steve Komphela for the coach’s comments on the performance of referee Victor Gomes in Ea Lla Koto’s 4-1 drubbing from Cavin Johnson’s SuperSport United.
“What’s done is done,” Larsen said. “Enough has been said about it, I want to move on and focus on what I do best.” Celtic haven’t done their best with two defeats in their first two matches.
The main problem has been the club’s attack which saw him sign striker Letsie Koapeng from Bidvest Wits as well as hand out trials to Sifiso Vilakazi, Terror Fanteni and Diyo Sibisi.
“We will sign one more striker who will complement Lerato Manzini,” Larsen said.
“We also have Lerato Lamola from the first division who is going to be a revelation.”
