Why Chiefs & Co Could Raid Swallows' Top Players

Swallows FC have revealed why they are prone to lose some of their star players to the likes of Kaizer Chiefs and the rest of the country’s big clubs should they come knocking.

The Birds’ bright start to the DStv Premiership campaign has taken a bit of a knock in recent times, but the club is still overachieving considering that last season they were still campaigning in the country’s second tier.

Inevitably, some of the club’s bright performers have managed to capture the eye of the country’s big hitters, who have been sniffing around Swallows players with the view of bringing them on board next season.

Asked if the club’s lack of a sponsor could see them lose some of their best player’s the club’s Chairman David Mogashoa was blunt in his response.

“Without a sponsor, and I will not be sugar-coating this answer… yes, it does put us at risk of losing some of our players because if we have a player or two and there is a club that is willing to pay for those players, we are obviously going to look at the offer and say let’s protect the club, sell those two players and make sure that the club is sustainable,” Mogashoa told the Siya crew.

But obviously it affects your momentum because you are losing key players. No club buys a player that has been sitting on the bench, so they want the players that are active. So, we have to now make sure that we have cover in all the positions so that when we are approached for a player, we don’t say no because obviously we need the money to run the club.

The Siya crew reported that Chiefs have made Swallows defender Njabulo Ngcobo a key transfer target for next season, and it remains to be seen whether they table an offer good enough to prize him away from the Birds’ nest.
