‘BIRDS’ STILL EXPECTING TCHAKUNTE’S ARRIVAL

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

MBABANE – Champions League-bound Mbabane Swallows are sweating over the delayed arrival of their Cameroonian anchorman Jocial Tchakunte.


The midfield hardman was expected in the country last week but by late yesterday, he had still not showed up. This, therefore, means he is likely to miss Swallows’ tough MTN League encounter against Manzini Sea Birds on Saturday at the Mhlume Stadium.


Noteworthy, is that the player watched Swallows in action during the team’s international practice match against South Africa’s glamour side Kaizer Chiefs, which was played behind closed doors at the FNB Stadium in South Africa last Sunday.
He has already been registered by the Mbabane giants. Swallows acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sibusiso Manana said yesterday that they were still expecting the player to arrive and join the team.


“Look, Jocial is our player. I am positive that he is probably held up by minor problems but we still believe he will arrive at any time from now.  He has already been registered by the team and that means we expect him to come and start playing.
“As per our promise to our supporters, we are doing everything possible to get the team ready not just for the Africa Cup game against Nkana but for the domestic competition as well. Once he arrives, we will let our supporters know, he said.


Reached for a comment, the player, who is still in South Africa, said he was still sorting a few personal issues that were making it impossible for him to immediately join the Mbabane giants.
“I will be coming to Swaziland soon my friend. Swallows is home to me that is why they have called me back. I cannot say when exactly I am coming though until I am done sorting my things this side.
“I have a very good relationship with the team from the big boss to the supporters. They loved me and I love them,” was all he was prepared to say.
