Following his side's 3-2 defeat against Mpumalanga Black Aces, speculation has increased that Marques may not be in charge of the Soweto side for much longer.  

According to Goal.com, Zeca Marques has confirmed that he has no intention of giving up on the task at hand despite the Dube Birds finding themselves edging closer to the relegation zone.

"No decision has been made yet," Marques said.

"So, I'm still the head coach of Swallows."

"I didn't submit any letter of resignation to anyone, and I don't intent to," he added.

The coach revealed in his post match comments that he might have to relinquish his position and this after club CEO Leon Prins backed the coach following their 3-0 defeat to Gavin Hunt's Bidvest Wits at Bidvest Stadium in the Telkom Knockout.

He said, "I want to say something, because I want to protect the coach; because I'm in the team talks.”

"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 does not get any easier for Moroka Swallows as face record-breaking Kaizer Chiefs next in their next PSL encounter on Wednesday, October 22 at the FNB Stadium.

Kick-off is scheduled for 19:30.
