Swallows Coach Praises Nomvethe

Moroka Swallows coach, Zeca Marques, has praised striker Siyabonga Nomvethe for his loyalty and commitment to the Birds.

This was after the 36-year-old decided to continue playing for Swallows despite the head injury he suffered during the controversial loss to Mamelodi Sundowns recently.

“Nomvethe told me that he wanted to play in the game against Wits and I asked him if he would be OK seeing that he had about 12 stitches in his head and he said, coach I want to play and I played him,” Marques told the Siya crew.

“He got hit by the ball in the head in the first few minutes of the game and he went down, but he still wanted to continue and that’s the kind of commitment that Nomvethe has for the club. That’s why I’m so proud to have a player like him in the team. He is a typical example of what a true footballer should be. We’re lucky to have him in the team,” concluded Marques.

Swallows next game is against Polokwane City on Sunday, December 15.
