Swallows sack Zeca Marques

Premiership

KickOff.com can reveal that Swallows FC have parted ways with coach Zeca Marques due to poor performance.

Marques was dismissed after meeting with Swallows management this morning.

The club is yet to announce a new coach even though former Kaizer Chiefs striker Fani Madida has emerged as a strong candidate to take over.

Madida is currently serving as the Dube Birds' technical director.
