Ngokumangazayo, uMnqithi uhole izinhlangothi zombili zaseThekwini wazifaka emabhukwini amaqembu angahlulwa kwi-Premier Soccer League.

I-Arrows ayikaze ihlulwe emidlalweni eyi-12 phakathi kukaMbasa noMandulo ngowezi-2009 – inqobe kasikhombisa yadlala ngokulingana emidlalweni emihlanu – kulokho isame isikhathi eside iqhubeka ngaphandle kokuhlulwa kwi-PSL.

Abafana’Besthende bagcine ngokunqoba isicoco sabo sokuqala lapho bephakamisa isicoco se-MTN 8 ngowezi-2009 ngaphansi kukaMnqithi.

UMnqithi ube esehola Amazulu emdlalweni wabo omude bengahlulwa ku-PSL ngemuva kwemidlalo eyi-11 kusukela ngoMasingana kuya kuNdasa ngowezi-2011.

Ubhalise ukunqoba okuthathu nokudlala ngokulingana okuyisishiyagalombili.

UMnqithi, kanye nabaqeqeshi uRhulani Mokwena noSteve Komphela, umelwe imidlalo emithathu edlala ne-Sundowns kule sizini. 

Baqhubeka nokukhululeka bebheke kuma-quarterfinal e-CAF Champions League, futhi bahleli kahle phezulu kwi-Premiership futhi basembangweni we-Nedbank Cup.
