Ncikazi: Arrows want to retain Shitolo's services

Golden Arrows assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi has heaped praise on midfielder Gladwin Shitolo, and admits the club would like to hold on to him.

The versatile player is currently on loan at Abafana Bes'thende from Orlando Pirates, who will make a decision over his future at the end of the season.

Ncikazi believes Shitolo is a great asset for Arrows and a perfect example for younger players to emulate, due to his attitude on the field and his overall professionalism.

"We wish to keep Shitolo in our team for the next season. Unfortunately, if a player doesn't belong to you, you have to listen to his club," Ncikazi told Isolezwe.

"We would be delighted to have him here at Arrows. He's a top-quality player and you'll remember when he was loaned out for the first time, he was committed and scored goals for us.

"He's a good example to our youngsters in the way he lives his life. He is disciplined and lives a clean lifestyle."

Shitolo also spent a stint on loan at Arrows back in the 2015/16 campaign.
