Swallows Chairman: It Was The Coach’s Decision

Swallows chairman David Mogashoa has discussed how the club goes about making a call on which player to sign following yet another busy transfer window.

The Dube Birds signed 13 players, while also snubbing high-profile names like George Lebese, Mark Mayambela and Mogakolodi Ngele.

But they still managed to be shrewd in the market by roping in Mwape Musonda, some loan deals from Orlando Pirates in Austin Muwowo and Monnapule Saleng as well as Yagan Sasman from Kaizer Chiefs to name a few.

“We don’t sign a player without consulting the coach (Brandon Truter) first because he has to put the squad together at the end of the day,” Mogashoa told the Siya crew.

“He will come to the office with a graph of his plans and where certain players will fit should we sign them. There are players that as management we might feel would add value to the squad, but when we speak to the coach he takes us into his confidence regarding his targets and gives us the go ahead to get the player.”

What happened to Lebese, Mayambela and Ngele – all left footed players?

“It was the coach’s decision. What is the use of signing a player if he is going to get a salary and then sit on the stands because the coach did not approve? We simply had too many players in that position already and the coach gave his reasons. We trust our coach and we respect his opinion – he has been at Swallows for three seasons now,” the chairman explained.
