Cape Town - Moroka Swallows caretaker coach Fani Madida says that he would be interested in taking over the reins at the club on a full-time basis.

Madida took charge of the Dube Birds at the beginning of the week after Zeca Marques stood down from his role as head coach.

In his first match at the helm, Madida guided Swallows to a surprise 1-1 draw with runaway league leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

"Of course I would want it," the 47-year-old admitted when asked about the vacant position.

"Because I've been an assistant coach for quite some time now, and I think it's time now if I could get the opportunity."

Madida says that the result against Chiefs came about because the team worked together for a common goal.

"There was much more enthusiasm from the players. We told ourselves we had to turn it around a bit," he explained.

"Everyone's been saying Chiefs are like a Gautrain, so I was saying before the game we had to go and take out the cables."

Next on the agenda for Swallows is a Premiership clash with Platinum Stars on Friday, October 31.
