Prins: Relegation would be disaster


“Actually I’m not feeling very well,” Prins tells when asked about his club’s chances of surviving the drop to the ABC Motsepe League.

“The problem is we've lost too many games in a row and we are in trouble. We are working hard, we are pushing as well but we are under a lot of pressure.”

Swallows need to make up seven points on the teams above them in the seven remaining games, and Prins says he cannot tell what will happen to the club if it fails to win its battle against relegation.


“I’m not God, I can't tell what will happen in the future, but all I can tell you is that the team is trying hard. We just need a little luck on our side, that's all. If everything doesn't go according to plan, the team will be relegated and that's a disaster,” he adds.

The Swallows boss also says it will be difficult for him to say exactly if they would consider selling the club or buying an NFD or PSL status for the former Soweto Giants, as up to now there is still no buyer who has put money where his mouth is.

“Too many things have been happening [in the boardroom], but it's not so simple. We shall see because we've been talking to investors for a long time now and people talk, talk, talk but they don't come [forward with an offer].”

Prins says they haven't lost hope as a club as they seek to gain some financial assistance from potential investors and there is still something in the pipeline.

“We are focusing, we won't be too hard, all I'm saying is we are doing our best. We are still talking to some investors, we are hoping something will come in.”
