MBABANE – Former Black Leopards head coach, Walter ‘Mr Fitness’ Rautman is set to arrive before the end of the week to assist Mbabane Swallows in their preparations for the CAF Champions league game against South Africa’s SuperSport United.

Rautman, the journey man of South African soccer known for saving teams from relegation in the last hurdle, is set to work hand in hand with current coach, Alou Badara.
He is expected in the country to sign on the dotted a short term contract with the ‘Beautiful Birds’.
An informed source told the Times Sports Desk that Rautman has been offered a six-month contract after agreeing terms with Mbabane Swallows boss, Victor ‘Maradona’ Gamedze.

“It is a short term agreement and he can’t wait to be in Swaziland to start working,” a Swallows insider told the Times Sports Desk. The move is facilitated by Kick-off Magazine soccer scribe, Ernest Fakude.

Reached for comment, Fakude confirmed that they have sealed a deal for Rautman with Swallows.
Fakudze further revealed that Rautman turned down an offer with First division side, Witbank Spurs to accept the Swallows offer.

“He is up to the challenge and I have no doubt he will assist Swallows with the experience he has,” he said.
Swallows secretary, Sibusiso Manana confirmed that Rautman is one of the coaches who have shown interest in assisting them for the Africa Cup campaign.
“We have a number of interested coaches but of course he leads the pack. Once the deal has been done, we will then make a formal announcement,” Manana said.
