Thohoyandou - Despite Moroka Swallows’ relegation to the National First Division (NFD), the Dube Birds’ captain Luvhengo Mungomeni has confirmed that he will be staying with the Soweto giants.

In an exclusive interview with Sport24, the 30-year-old sweeper said he intends to honour his contract with Swallows which is set to elapse at the end of the 2016/17 season.

“Yes I will be playing for Moroka Swallows next season despite being relegated,” Mungomeni confirmed.

“I am still contracted to the team until June 2017 so I will be going nowhere.

“And again I think that it’s my duty as a player to honour my contract, so I am still a Moroka Swallows player until my contract expires.”

“Papi” joined the Dube Birds from Mamelodi Sundowns back in July 2011 and guided the Soweto giants to the 2012 MTN8 crown during Zeca Marques’ reign.
