Inspired By Legends, Relegation-Threatened Striker Comments On Future

Ruzaigh Gamildien – the Swallows FC striker who came close to playing for Kaizer Chiefs this season, has commented on his future amid relegation woes for the Dube Birds.     

After banging in the goals for Swallows last season, Gamildien came close to completing a move to Amakhosi after they showed serious interest in his services.

Last season, Gamildien scored 11 goals in Swallows’ DStv Premiership campaign and was one of the standout performers for the Gauteng-based club.

The player’s form and high work-rate earned him the recognition of former Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt who wanted to sign him for the Soweto giants.

However, the Cape Town-born player’s proposed move fell through, with Chiefs’ parting of ways with Hunt towards the end of last season contributing to the turn of events.      

This season, Gamildien has struggled to replicate the form of the previous campaign, with the 33-year-old having netted only five goals in Swallows’ fight against relegation, and speaking to the Siya crew, the forward has confirmed that he has another year on his contract with the Dube Birds amid recent media reports linking him with a move elsewhere.

“I still have one year and an option on my contract, so whatever happens is entirely in the club’s hands because I’m still contracted to the club. Whatever happens, I will still be at Swallows,” Gamildien confirmed to the Siya crew.

“Obviously, I’m going to try and play until my legs don’t allow me to anymore. There are players that played until they were much older and to give you an example, Vuyo (Mere, former Swallows teammate) is 36 or 37 (the TS Galaxy defender is 38), and still playing. (Lindokuhle) Mbatha (36) is still playing, and they are all older than me. I’m not going to limit myself to predict the years of how long I’ll still be playing, I’ll just take it as it comes. I feel like I can still play for maybe five more seasons,” the experienced player said.
