SOCCER – MBABANE Swallows are keeping their fingers crossed over the CAF Champions League registration of their five new signings ahead of their game on Tuesday.

Swallows will host Tunisian giants Etoile Sportivo du Sahel at the Mavuso Sports Centre in Manzini.

The new signings, including Xolani ‘Papi’ Sikhondze, Cameroonian midfielder Amougou  Jean Claude and Sierra Leon born striker Sallieu Tarawallie, were unveiled during the team’s training session at the Prince of Wales ground alongside  former Tambuti central defender Siboniso Ndzabandzaba and Ubombo Flyers’ left-back Sakhile Shongwe.

Mbabane Swallows General Manager Sandile Zwane said they were hoping to have all their players available for the CAF game.

“We would like to have them registered for the CAF game, and we have already submitted all the necessary documents.

We are now waiting for CAF to respond and then take it from there,” he said.

He added that everything was well on track and that players were all committed ahead of the game.

“This is an important game for us and that is why we would like to have all our players present in the Champions League. Our supporters can be assured that we will not be releasing any player until after these games.


“Our policy at Swallows is that we use these games to market our players, hence will not stand in their way to greener pastures.

 Playing in the Champions League is expensive and we don’t gain much, but we know that in the event they attract international offers, it is not only the playes who benefit but the team and the country,” he said.
