Cape Town - Moroka Swallows CEO
Leon Prins has revealed that caretaker coach Fani Madida is getting the chance
to prove himself as head coach.
Madida was appointed assistant manager at the start of the
season, but took over the side on a temporary basis following Zeca Marques'
departure last month.
The Dube Birds had been expected to swiftly name a new boss,
but have delayed their search for a new manager for the time being.
"At the moment we are not because we are busy assessing
the situation," Prins told KickOff.
"At the moment Fani is doing a good job with the team
but it’s obviously difficult to assess because matches are few and far between.
"In normal circumstances you have a couple of matches
every week but now it hasn't been the case.
"But I’m not complaining because it’s the same for all
the teams. But if we do well, why not give the guy a chance to coach."
Prins also feels Swallows have been unlucky with injuries
and suspensions this season and believes their form will improve with more
players returning to action.
"Look at the beginning of the season we were a little
bit unfortunate because we didn't have a sponsor and our squad was
thinner," he added.
"We were also unfortunate with injuries and suspensions
but now that players like Lefa [Tsutsulupa] are coming back, the situation is
"Obviously there are certain positions where we will
need re-enforcements but the team is working hard."
