Mogashoa: Thibedi will deal with Chiefs


Swallows boss David Mogashoa has allayed fears that midfielder Given Thibedi will not be available for selection when the Dube Birds host Kaizer Chiefs tonight.

Thibedi is currently on loan to Swallows from Amakhosi, as is central midfielder Sammy Seabi from Mamelodi Sundowns.

But while other loan deals have clauses against players facing their parent clubs, Mogashoa assures the Dube Birds that Thibedi will be part of the team at the Dobsonville Stadium.

"I wouldn't have signed any player with that clause. Even Sammy Seabi has no such clause from Sundowns," Mogashoa reveals to

"Given Thidedi will be in the team to face Kaizer Chiefs. He will be there to deal with Kaizer Chiefs."

Sizwe Twala, Itumeleng Shopane and Ayanda Rorwana have returned to Naturena following loan spells with Swallows last season.

Brandon Truter's side are yet to lose a game since being promoted to the DStv Premiership as GladAfrica Championship winners.
