Title-Chasing Coach In Demand…

A title-chasing coach in the Premier Soccer League is believed to be in demand ahead of next season, though no offers have yet been confirmed.

Swallows FC mentor Brandon Truter’s efforts at the GladAfrica Championship side have not gone unnoticed, with Siya sources informing the crew that two unnamed sides in the Premiership have made informal inquiries about his availability.

The interest has been confirmed by Truter's agent, Basia Michaels of QT Sports.

“I can confirm there have been inquires made for coach Brandon’s services. The coach has made it clear to me that he wants to focus on the remainder of the season and steering Swallows back into the Premiership. I respect his decision and I have advised the interested parties about that. I do believe that his request is fair and that then means we will deal with these talks in quick time should it come to that – things will move faster than usual because of the current Covid situation," she explained. 

But Swallows boss, chairman David Mogashoa, has however made it clear that the coach still has another year left on his contract and they are hopeful he will lead them to the top flight next season and remain in the hot seat should that be the case.

As things stand, Swallows are in second place and eyeing the automatic promotion place, though they are still seven points behind leaders Ajax Cape Town with six matches to be played when the 2019/20 season resumes next weekend.

“This came up about a month ago, but what I can tell you is that coach Brandon signed a two-year contract with us that included an added option. We have exercised that option and we are eager for promotion and believe he is the man for the job,” said Swallows chairman Mogashoa.

Truter impressed at Richards Bay, though they missed out on promotion last season, and his work there paved the way to the Soweto club at the start of the campaign. 

Even if Ajax beat them to the title, Swallows could still have a chance in the play-offs at the end of the month and that, for now, remains Truter’s focus.
