MBABANE – Matsapha United Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Victor ‘Mavikane’ Dlamini has jumped out of the ‘Deep Blue Ocean.’

The outspoken sports administrator quit his position yesterday after serving for about two seasons in the MTN Premier League side. The latest developments come in the wake of player’s exodus at the Matsapha-based ensemble. Matsapha have also lost the services of nine players, who have since been cleared to Mbabane Highlanders.

“It was like I was driving a train and all the passengers reached their destination. I had no one to continue with. I am proud of what we achieved.
“It’s been a good experience working for Matsapha United club. I’m happy that I’ve served the team with respect and they’ve also done the same to me. I’m not quitting football as I am a sports person,” he said.

Dlamini then thanked the Board of Directors, Management committee, players and the fans for their support during his reign. He said they were working as a family and that was why they achieved a lot.

Reports suggested ‘Mavikane’ could be snatched by one of the big teams, but he categorically stated that he was currently a free agent.
Dlamini took over from Celucolo ‘Dino’ Dlamini, who left the club to join Mbabane Highlanders in the 2016/ 17 season.

Dlamini (Mavikane) will be remembered for his ‘razzmatazz’ tagline when he introduced himself. He used to say siphethe  ivibe, sibloma ekasi and sitobashiya be dizzy during sports shows and football events, when he had to address the gathering.

This was simple a colloquial speech he used to warn opponents about the threat of the team fondly known as ‘Deep Blue Ocean’.
Matsapha United General Manager Sifiso Shongwe could not be reached for comment last night.
