Marques Confirms Mahashe's Presence

Moroka Swallows coach Zeca Marques has confirmed with the Siya crew that Mzwanele Mahashe is on the team’s radar and is training with the rest of the squad.

Marques is looking to bolster his defence before the league campaign resumes in February, with the former Wits player currently being assessed by the Birds’ technical team.

 

It was revealed on the Soccer-Laduma web and mobi-site on Wednesday that the former Student is training with the current MTN8 champions. Several sources at the club, including the player, have confirmed his trial with side.

 

Despite denials from the official Moroka Swallows twitter account about the player's presence at the club, Marques has confirmed that the player is training with the Swallows first team and has been doing so since Monday.

 

Marques revealed that he is looking to add a central defender to his ranks. He said that he will assess the player during the course of his trial.

 

“We are looking at him because he is a centre-back and obviously at the back is the position that we want to sort out. Unfortunately, we haven’t had much chance to look at him because we have been doing a lot of physical training. We haven’t played much football. He will be given a fair chance. 

 

“There are certain characteristics that I’m going to look for in every player. There’s a criteria that I’ve set out now and we know what we’re looking for,” said Marques.
