Sour end for for veteran defender at Swallows


Veteran left-back Tebogo Langerman’s stay at relegation threatened Swallows will come to a sour end at the end of the season.

Langerman joined Swallows at the beginning of the season after nine years at Mamelodi Sundowns hoping for game time after featuring in just seven games last term with The Brazilians.

Following a good start with The Birds playing 12 games until Christmas with his last appearance having come in December against Cape Town City he suddenly disappeared.

Matters relating to non-payment of his salary then surfaced.

As he took his fight for what is due to him hands on, he was no longer involved in the team with reports suggesting that he wasn’t training regularly with the club anymore.

The 36-year-old has now not been involved in any match this year.

He is due to leave upon the expiry of his contract at the end of next month.

Meanwhile, Swallows are facing the danger if dropping down from the DStv Premiership back to the GladAfrica Championship.

They face Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium in the last game of the season hoping that they get a win which cannot be bettered by more than three goals by Baroka.

If Baroka win or draw away at Maritzburg United, then they will drop down automatically.

Both Swallows and Baroka have 25 points though The Brids have the advantage of a better goal difference.

Such is the tension at Swallows that they have banned interviews in recent weeks with suggestions pointing to that the money troubles at the club is what has sunk them to the situation that they are now faced with.
