"Swallows don't have players"


A leading former Moroka Swallows player believes the club have made the wrong decision in sacking head coach Brandon Truter.

The Dube Birds are currently rock bottom of the DStv Premiership standings with Truter shown the exit door.

According to former attacker Lucas "Makhokhoba" Sebona, the root of the problem at the club is the playing personnel.

"Swallows don't have players," Sebona tells Kickoff.com.

"Remember with the likes of Njabulo Ngcobo they were Swallows' foundation in a building phase since promotion.

"They had a solid back four. But with the latest group of players to me, they are average, to be honest. They lack character.

"Even when they are playing I struggle to analyse them. They are like a group of individuals that were recruited from the street.

"This season Swallows brought in the likes of Jody February, Tebogo Langerman, Grant Margemann and Yagan Sasman, but Sebona is still not convinced.

"To be honest, they don't give Swallows anything these guys. I've watched them and they are average with the likes of Sasman.

"Actually, I'm wondering how Sasman managed to play for Chiefs. There is nothing special about that guy. As for the likes of Langerman, age is catching up to him as well.

"You must bear in mind they have played too many games while they were at Sundowns. The likes of Matlaba is just all over the place.

"They do have a goalkeeper, they just need central defenders. The goalkeeper is saving them they could have been beaten by five, six goals.

"Their midfield lacks experience. They need more experience in that position."
