Swallows fire Brandon Truter and his entire coaching staff after a run of poor resultsSwallows coach Brandon Truter and his assistant Simo Dladla and the entire coaching team were fired on Sunday evening a few hours after a 3-1 Soweto derby defeat against Kaizer Chiefs which saw the Bird plunge to the bottom of the DStv Premiership with one win in 12 matches. The club released a statement and said the decision came after an emergency meeting with the coaching staff. “After receiving a report from the Coaching staff, management was further convinced that something drastically need to happen. “With the team at the rock bottom of the DSTV Premiership, management has resolved that the entire Coaching Staff should not report for duty with immediate effect. “An interim arrangement will be announced soon. “We have noted the concerns raised by our supporters. We apologise for the poor performance, please continue supporting the team,” reads the Swallows statement. Truter was placed on “special leave” in September apparently for poor results and returned to the bench after two weeks. He led Swallows to a commendable sixth in his first season in the Premiership last season, but a run of two win in 30 matches stretching from last season seemingly forced the management’s hand. Stop reporting thuggish news, they were told not to report for duty I wish they could do the same to Cyril eish! Imagine being fire by an incompetent MEC. Imagine being fired by a man who is a disgrace in the education department. Yeses!!!
