Swallows welcome back Njabulo
Njabulo Ndlovu of Mbabane Swallows
The player, who has missed his team’s opening MTN League matches against Red Lions and Manzini Sundowns, started training with the red and white giants on Monday afternoon at the Prince of Wales where Swallows conduct their sessions.
He was also present yesterday and went through his paces under the watchful eye of the team’s head coach Nyanga ‘Crooks’ Hlophe and his assistant Siyabonga Bhembe.
He reclaimed his place in the first team, as he sweated it out in a practice game against the reserves.
Swallows Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sibusiso Manana said they were aware of the player’s whereabouts and assured their supporters that Ndlovu is not going anywhere.
“I have been at pains trying to explain to everyone who cared to listen that Njabulo is our player, who has a running contract with the team just like the rest of the other players. We were also aware of his whereabouts as a team,” he toldMTNFootball.com.
The player could not be drawn to comment on his return, as training lasted for over three hours and could not be disturbed.
He will be available for selection in the recently launched PLS/Swazi Telecom Ultimate Home Cup, which kicks off on Friday at the Mavuso Sports Centre.
