Moroka Swallows are facing the prospect of losing almost half of the squad at the end of the season because our players’ contracts are coming to an end.
The likes of Roger da Costa, Giorgi Nergadze, Ashraf Hendricks, Gilbert Mapemba, Luvhengo Mungomeni, Nkosinathi Ogle and Darren Lurie will all see their contracts coming to an end in June, yet the management is dragging its feet in terms of trying to tie them down to new deals.
Most of these players form the core of our starting line-up and if they leave on a free at the end of the season, then coach Zeca Marques will have to start with an almost completely new team next season.
It will then take time for the new team to gel and, before you know it, we’ll be fighting relegation next season!
So, Swallows management be warned - renew the players’ contracts now or face the prospect of seeing the team go down to the NFD next season.
