Shaun Bartlett gets vote of confidence from Cape Town Spurs

Cape Town Spurs have backed under-fire head coach Shaun Bartlett.

The newly-promoted DStv Premiership side have recorded four defeats from their opening four games, scoring once and conceding seven times.

They most recently went down 1-0 to Chippa United and are rock bottom of the standings, ahead of facing Swallows at Dobsonville Stadium on Wednesday.

But prior to the game, Spurs say that Bartlett’s position at the club is safe and have backed the manager to improve the club’s current form.

A club statement on Twitter on Monday read: “Although our results have been disappointing, coach Shaun Bartlett has the full support of the Cape Town Spurs FC board.

“We ask that people respect that Shaun has a contract with the club and refrain and refrain from making unfounded statements in the media to gain cheap publicity for their own personal benefit.”
