Cape Town - Moroka Swallows CEO Leon Prins is keen to hold
on to some of his veteran players as the Dube Birds prepare for life in the
National First Division.
According to the Sport24
source at the club, Prins wants to take a few experienced players to the NFD.
Among the players that will remain with the club is veteran
goalkeeper, Greg Etafia, as well as two South African greats, Siyabonga
Nomvethe and Lefa Tsutsulupa.
The latter is being prepared for a role within
the technical team.
“The club wants to remain with a few experienced players
that will take a leading role in the NFD; however there are already offers for
Nomvethe and Felix Obada among players that are still in the books of the team.
“It’s a difficult situation at the moment as some of these
players are in the twilight of their careers and are not willing to go down and
take a pay cut.”
The Dube Birds have already lost Vuyisile Wana and Lantshene
Phalane, who have signed for Bloemfontein Celtic while Lucky Baloyi has
returned to Kaizer Chiefs after the end of his loan spell.
