The news to the Siya team is that Swallows seem to have suspended one of their trainers as crisis discussions inside the club continue.
Coach Kamaal Sait has not been working since September 19, which is curiously also the final time Coach Brandon Truter appears in the dugout before being given a special leave, according to information provided by Soccer Laduma.
During the day, SuperSport United hammered Dube Birds 3:0 in DStv’s DStv Premiership stadium – which resulted in President David Mogashoa apologizing to Twitter’s supporters.
Sait has now come to Truter, but Siya’s crew has now been notified that his case might have been much more serious as he may have been suspended and the head coach is reported to have requested to “leave.”
Truter is likely to return to the FIFA after Swallows Stellenbosch FC had seen his side first 0-0 in a league game against Cape Town City and then 4-0 in the second leg of the MTN8 semifinal.
During both matches, the first team assistant Simo Dladla was appointed temporarily as leader of the club – and he will again be the commander of the squad Dube Birds Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.
In both these games, Sait was not at the bench and he was suspected that his future hinges on Swallows.
He was suspended according to insiders.
The Siya crew looked for Mogashoa’s comments, but he sent all questions to Sipho Xulu, the seasoned manager.
“Yes, for reasons between him and the club, the trainer is now not active, and we cannot say any more. I believe the employer and staff confidentially must be honored by both parties,” he explains.
