Prins Dismisses Igesund’s Birds Talk

Moroka Swallows CEO Leon Prins has dismissed media reports linking outgoing Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund with a possible return to the club.

Igesund managed Swallows between 2010 and 2012 and led the Dube Birds to a remarkable second placed finish during the 2011/12 season.

With finishing 13th last season and with Igesund’s contract not renewed by Safa, speculation has been rife that Igesund could make a return to Swallows; however Prins told the Siya crew that the Birds management hadn’t discussed Igesund’s return.

“No, I mean Gordon only became free yesterday. At the moment we have had no discussions about Gordon, so Zeca Marques remains our coach,” Prins told the crew.

Igesund will see his contract as Bafana Bafana coach coming to expiring in August and yesterday, Safa announced that the Association would not be renewing it.

The Bafana mentor has also been linked with a move to SuperSport United and it remains to be seen if this move will materialise.

The crew will keep an eye on Igesund’s situation and keep you update.
