Mohammed is a Bird
The discarded Ghanaian born striker signed a one-year renewable deal with the MTN League defending champions this morning after spending the past week training with the club.
Both the player’s representative Erica and Mbabane Swallows Acting CEO Sibusiso Manana confirmed the matter.
Manana said the player was part of the Swallows project which faces the prospect of defending the league crown when the new season commence next month.
“He is now our player after and he has signed a one year renewable contract. We are not going to reveal the figures because we respect individual’s contracts,” he said.
The player’s representative known as Erica also refused to disclose figures, except to state that the deal was satisfactory to all parties involved.
“We are all happy at the deal and the player has signed a one-year contract,” he said.
Meanwhile, Manana said the club was still in the process of recruiting more players to boost their team before the start of the season.
“We are not revealing figures because we are in the process of signing other players. We do not want to put ourselves or the player under unnecessary pressure,” he said.
The player was shown the exit door at the ‘Weslians’ at the end of past season alongside other big name players.
He was quickly snapped up by Swallows when they resumed training for the pre-season last week. He is joining a striking force that already comprised of MTN League Player of the Season Sabelo Ndzinisa and Mfanafuthi ‘Taribo’ Bhembe who both netted 14 goals each last season.
Mohammed had joined Wanderers in January 2010 and quickly established himself as a key figure during the coaching tenure of William ‘Tiger’ Thompson. He lost his form when Mathews ‘Chaka Chaka’ Mandlazi was in charge as he fell behind Sidumo Shongwe and Nkululeko Dlamini in the pecking order.
