Swal­lows fans cry foul over Ng­werume exit

Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL SPORT - By Mphikeleli Msibi

SOC­CER - A num­ber of dis­ap­pointed Mba­bane Swal­lows fans yes­ter­day took to the so­cial me­dia to vent their anger and dis­sat­is­fac­tion after Zim­bab­wean star player Alois Ng­werume was shown the exit door.

The for­mer Moroka Swal­lows player has al­ready been is­sued with his clear­ance and is al­ready out of the coun­try, leav­ing be­hind his fel­low coun­try­men in goal­keep­ers Jim Knowl­edge and Ni­cho Fran­cis.

The fans felt it was a bad move by the club to re­lease the player, whom was never even given a chance to prove him­self.

They ar­gue that such un­timely and mis­cal­cu­lated de­ci­sions were a let down to the team.

Ng­werume joined Swal­lows after the Swazi Tele­com Char­ity Cup tri­umph and was touted as the per­fect re­place­ment for then want away mid­fielder Njab­ulo ‘D4D’ Ndlovu, who had spent the bet­ter part of pre­sea­son train­ing with army side, Young Buf­faloes. Ndlovu, how­ever, re­turned to his beloved Swal­lows after the botched move to the army team. The move rel­e­gated Ng­werume to the bench. His de­par­ture was con­firmed by Swal­lows act­ing Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Sibu­siso, who said they had to take the decision for the bet­ter­ment of the club.

He said the team was on the verge of sign­ing a for­eign an­chor­man and this was a care­fully thought out decision.

This is what they said:

Swal­lows re­lease Ng­werume, mmmm is it a good or bad decision?? im just ask­ing my­self what do you think fel­low

EXIT: Alois Ng­werume.
