Marques Impressed By Neto

Moroka Swallows coach Zeca Marques has been impressed by Portuguese midfielder Joao Pedro Henriques Neto, who is training with his club, but says that it is still too early to tell if the club will sign him or not.

Neto, who last played for Doxa Katokopias in Cyprus, has been training with the Dube Birds for almost two weeks now.

“He is looking good at training, but he lacks match fitness after being away from the game for the past four months. He has great vision and a hard worker. You can see that he is coming from Europe,” Marques told the Siya crew.

“I’ll sit down with the Swallows management and see if we need to sign him now or in December. I must say though that I’m impressed with his professionalism and the fact that he came all the way from overseas and was willing to undergo a trial just like everyone else,” added Marques.

Meanwhile, Marques once again confirmed to the crew that a decision on whether or not to sign former Maritzburg United and Black Aces midfielder Sheldon Lawrence will be made soon.

Lawrence has been training with Swallows for some time now, in the hope of earning himself a contract with the Birds.
