Observer on Saturday - - Sport - By Mthunzi Maziya

- In a sur­pris­ing move, MTN League pace-set­ters, Green Mamba FC have re­leased strong de­fender Siyabonga ‘Msholozi’ Md­luli to First Di­vi­sion rook­ies Pigg’s Peak Black Swal­lows. A re­li­able source con­firmed the move yes­ter­day. He said the player would be with Black Swal­lows for the next six months, and they ex­pect him to be back with the team for pre-sea­son. “It is true that we have de­cided to of­fer ‘Msholozi’ to Black Swal­lows. We hope that his move will ben­e­fit both par­ties, es­pe­cially be­cause Swal­lows are chal­leng­ing for pro­mo­tion to the Pre­mier League,” he said. The source added that their main aim was for the player to re­gain full fit­ness, so that he can come back and help the team next sea­son. Black Swal­lows’ Chair­man, Charles Mat­se­bula con­firmed that they have reached an agree­ment with Green Mamba to sign the player for the re­main­der of the sea­son. “We are very happy to get a player of ‘Msholozi’s cal­i­bre.

He will help us a lot in our quest to win pro­mo­tion. Ev­ery­body knows how good a player he is. We have no doubt that our young­sters will ben­e­fit a lot by in­ter­act­ing with him given his ex­pe­ri­ence,” he said.

The de­fender has been out of ac­tion for some time due to in­jury, and be­cause he is still re­cov­er­ing, he will not be im­me­di­ately avail­able for Swal­lows. Mat­se­bula said the team’s fans can ex­pect the player to ap­pear for the team in the next two weeks.

Green Mamba’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Thami Phakathi could only con­firm that they have re­leased five play­ers to get game time with other teams. He said he can­not speak on be­half of those teams, and con­firmed that ‘Msholozi’ is one of the play­ers re­leased.

“All these play­ers have been sent out on loan. They will be back with the team in time for the start of the new sea­son,” he said. The other four play­ers, ac­cord­ing to Phakathi, are Sawa Ginindza, Muhle Shiba, Phinda Ginindza, and Muntu Mamba. Mean­while, an im­pec­ca­ble source re­vealed that the move will cost Black Swal­lows a sum of E10 000.
