SOCCER – Estranged former Mbabane Swallows defender Xolani ‘Tyson’ Magagula has won an ownership battle against his childhood club Tinyosi FC. The former National Under-20 player took the National First Division side to the Eswatini Football Association (EFA) Players Status committee over his ownership.

The player wants to join a team of his choice but Tinyosi sang a different tune and alleged that he had a two-year contract which he signed mid last season when he joined them from Swallows. However, Tinyosi plea was thrown out of the window as they are alleged to have failed to prove the legitimacy of the said two-year contract with the player. The committee then ruled in favour of the player and cleared him to a team of his choice. The matter was heard on Thursday night at the Sigwaca House where the player represented himself whilst Tinyosi Public Relations Officer (PRO) Thobile Dlamini represented the team. EFA Marketing and Communications Officer Muzi Radebe referred queries to the PSC when sought for comment.

“The PSC is working independently and they are ones handling this kind of matters similar with the one you are talking about,” he said. The Chairman of the PSC Sipho Matse declined to comment on the matter by politely referring queries to the national body. Magagula intends to join Pigg’s Peak based side Malanti Chiefs in the new season.
