Nomvethe: It’s About The Players
12 December 2012
Last campaign Moroka Swallows finished the season as the PSL runners-up and at the start of the 2012/13 season, they clinched the MTN8.
However, the Soweto-based club has struggled in the league of late and currently find themselves sat in 12th place of the log. The Zeca Marques-coached side have lost five out of their last six league outings and last recorded a victory back in October, defeating Free State Stars 1-0.
Last season’s PSL Player of the Season, Siyabonga "Bhele" Nomvethe, is out with injury while the team struggles to find form, however he insists that the coach is not to blame for the poor run of results.
He told the Siya crew that the coach does not play and that the players should take responsibility on the field.
"It is painful to see the team in the position that it is in now. I am fit now but I can only start playing in January. You know the players should step up and show that they want to win the games for the team.
“This has nothing to do with the coach. It’s about the players. The coach doesn't play so the ones who play should make it happen, and the sooner the better," Nomvethe concluded.
