Moroka Swallows coach Marques tips Manqele for golden boot

Posted: 20 September 2013 Time: 14:44

Moroka Swallows coach Zeca Marques believes that striker Edward Manqele stands a great chance of winning the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award this season.

Manqele has netted four goals, including a hat-trick, since joining the Dube Birds from Mamelodi Sundowns on loan last month.

"The top goal scorer last season was on 12 [Ed. 13] goals and Manqele has already scored a quarter of those goals after only four games," Marques tells

"He is on the right track. I think he can do much more better than is currently doing. He needs to be more forceful and aggressive upfront."

Katlego Mashego won the accolade when in the colours of Swallows last season. Marques feels his team's attacking philosophy suits frontmen.

"We playing attacking football. We are an attack-minded team and create lot of chances," Marques says.

"We also create a conducive environment for players where they perform under no pressure at Swallows."

Easy there Majazana....maybe what you mean to say is 'he will score more goals than he did at Sunflops'

I would like to agree with you there Majazana! Swallows are a very attack-minded team, and with a lethal striker like Manqele, you will get to net a lot of goals. umona phansi, Swallows always look dangerous when in attack, and a real football lover will admit this whether you're a Buccaneer or a Chimpanzee! If they continue to attack, Manqele can easily net 20+ goals. He is a far better striker than Mashego.

PhutiRapheeha 20 goals.....cha baba...uganga manje. When last did the PSL top goal scorer went past 20 goals.....?

posted: 2013-09-20 13:26:53

1in10 PhutiRapheeha look at the current scoring rate this season, only 5 games played and yet more than 60(or even more goals) scored. Teams are scoring goals baba, and if Swallows have Manqele regularly with the support of Nomvete, Chabangu, and the likes, that guy is a goal poacher of note, they will create, he will score! Seriously, it's very possible.

Musona will win the golden boot hands down with 25 this space!

Bacela will miss 35 clear cut chances.........Mabena will miss 100

NATURENABOY Wena uthanda iChiefs not football! Be realistic baba.. Musona is so overrated! Akusakorwa ngamaShot lamalanga! Parker will score more goals than all the Chiefs strikers, cause he is a clever striker and not like Musona who just shoots and hopes.

Ngoma of Tuks scored all his 4 goals for the season in one game; was an instant hit to ever gullible Robert Marawa and was paraded as the next best thing after KFC. Before we knew it, he went on an hiatus the rest of the season. It's just an advice for Marques to be cautious in his quest for publicity not to put pressure on the player.

1in10 PhutiRapheeha Remember, Swallows was among the teams that scored the most goals last season, but also among the ones that conceded the most goals.
