Shaun Bartlett

Where is Shaun Bartlett now?

One of the first South Africans to grace the Premier League, former Charlton Athletic striker Shaun Bartlett retired from playing in 2009 after a couple of seasons back in his native country with Kaizer Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic.

Although he wasn’t a prolific scorer for the Addicks he was a solid team player because of his physicality and his ability to hold up the ball.

Bartlett was also an important member of the South Africa national side from 1995 to 2005 winning 74 caps and representing them in the 1998 FIFA World Cup finals.

After spending a few years honing his coaching skills Bartlett was appointed assistant manager of South African team Golden Arrows in 2012.

He then spent time working as interim coach of the side before he was appointed head coach in June 2014, however he was sacked a year later despite winning promotion to the South African Premiership. 

In January 2016, he made a return to football when he was appointed as head coach of the University of Pretoria but was sacked after a couple of seasons.

After spells working with the South African under 23’s and the senior side, he joined his current club Kaizer Chiefs as assistant manager in 2018.
