Cape Town - Moroka Swallows head coach Zeca Marques says
that he will resign from his role if it is what is best for the club.
Wits march past Swallows
The Dube Birds have endured a tough start to the 2014/15
campaign, with early victories a distant memory as they have slumped to a
string of defeats, including a 3-0 loss to Bidvest Wits in the opening round of
the Telkom Knockout.
An early exit from the cup only further intensified the
pressure on Marques, who admitted that he would step aside if it was what was
deemed necessary by the Dube Birds board.
"I have never been concerned because the club knows how
I feel," he said.
"If it is time for me to step aside, I'll do it, it's
not even a question."
Swallows chairman Leon Prins once again underlined his
support for Marques, slamming the attitude of the club's players.
"I want to say something, because I want to protect the
coach; because I'm in the team talks,” Prins told KickOff.
"It's not fair! The players are not listening to what
we've told them to do. And I'm going to personally give them a blasting, and I
want the coach to be there.”
"It's nonsense, because everyone will blame the coach
but its bull-dust."
"The coach has done a perfect job. I've been in the
team talks; I know exactly what has been said.”
