Swallows need new investors, says Lesufi
If he did not already hold the demanding post of Gauteng MEC for education, Panyaza Lesufi would be an active shareholder in his beloved Moroka Swallows.
“I am speaking to some businesspeople to invest in the club before it dies a slow death,” Lesufi told City Press this week.
Lesufi also has some ideas on how the club should work itself out of the National First Division.
“Swallows need to look at talent identification, support base and financial muscle.
“The club must not recruit ordinary players but reactivate its talent identification, as it used to recruit great players.”
The club’s support base was also very weak, noted Lesufi, who had been a loyal Swallows supporter since 1988.
And, despite Swallows’ fall from the elite league, Lesufi added, “I will continue to support the team. I can’t change my loyalty.”
