Leal And Moroka Swallows Part Ways

Moroka Swallows have officially parted ways with coach Julio Leal – despite his leading the Birds to Nedbank Cup glory last week.
The Brazilian coach Julio Leal has confirmed meeting with Moroka Swallows management yesterday, but refused to give more details of his departure from the club except to say, “Life goes on”.

University of Pretoria coach Steve Barker reveals he has turned down an offer from Swallows to replace Leal in the hot seat.

“I’m committed to my own club and I have unfinished business there,” he says. Meanwhile, Birds midfielder Cecil Oerson has confirmed that is currently waiting for his contract with the club to expire at the end of this month before signing for Bloemfontein Celtic.

“My contract with Swallows expires at the end of this month and I have to honour it. I would only say I am almost 60 percent Celtic player.”
