Furious Swallows Chairman Threatens To Sell Club!

Swallows FC chairman David Mogashoa has threatened to sell the club after intercepting messages on social media regarding a planned protest by a faction of supporters at their game against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

He confirmed to the Siya crew that he had been made aware of WhatsApp texts circulating as the pressure mounts on coach Brandon Truter following the 1-0 defeat away to TS Galaxy in the DStv Premiership last weekend.

“I will sell this club! I have asked the fans several times to be patient with the team because we are going through a bad spell,” Mogashoa explained.

“But now I have learnt that some of them are planning to protest outside the Dobsonville Stadium when we play Chiefs on Sunday. We can’t have that – they can’t decide to take matters into their own hands in this fashion. If this is what they want, then maybe I should sell the club and they can take over.”

The Dube Birds are one of four teams tied on eight points at the foot of the table after 11 round of matches, with Swallows second from bottom because of goal difference.

It’s the kind of results that have led to some supporters confronting the coach either at their training grounds in Braamfontein or outside the venues at the end of the recent matches, the latest being the loss to TS Galaxy.

Mogashoa told Soccer Laduma earlier in the week that he had no plans to sack Truter after a brief, but necessary, meeting and added that it’s the players that had to take responsibility considering the quality players signed at the start of the season.  

Truter helped them to a credible sixth place finish in their first campaign back in topflight football in May following a five year hiatus.
