EZULWINI – It is an open secret that local coaches have not rendered much support to their national team Sihlangu colleagues Anthony Mdluli and Caleb Ngwenya.

Even National Football Association of Swaziland (NFAS) President Adam ‘Bomber’ Mthethwa knows it and could not ignore it on Friday afternoon when he officially opened the annual Football Coaches Symposium at the Swaziland Water Services Corporation (SWSC) in Ezulwini.

“When you indicated that you were ready to lead Sihlangu as local coaches, we listened as the NFAS. Last time we had a foreign coach who we reluctantly hired (Pieter De Jongh) because we listen to you. His assistant was Anthony who is now the head coach but it looks like you don’t support him when it’s a must you do,” he said.

He told the coaches from all corners and divisions of the country’s football that since the NFAS was ready to give the job to them, they also needed to support the current coach and his technical bench.

“Tomorrow it could be you and imagine all the support you would require from your colleagues. Let us all be supportive of the other. Competition is fine in our teams but when its national team, we must all work together towards one goal, improving our performance internationally,” Mthethwa said.

He said the NFAS was proud that the symposium had been ongoing since 2012 and its results are there to be seen as competition in teams domestically and internationally has improved.

“The Sihlangu job is there but for now, Mdluli will keep the fires burning until we go for a new coach but your support as colleagues, is essential. You asked us to open up and advertise the Sihlangu post, and we listened,” he said.
