Swallows FC, according to Mogashoa, are repaying Kaizer Chiefs for their assistance when the club was relegated from the PSL by giving them first refusal on any of the players they choose.
Swallows chairman David Mogashoa has disclosed the reason why Kaizer Chiefs beat their competitors to Njabulo Ngcobo's signature.
MOGASHOA BEGINS WORK ON KAIZER CHIEFS TRANSFER AGREEMENT
“In our connection with Kaizer Chiefs, we had to come to the party as well. Njabulo Ngcobo, for example, is a very good player who we should not have lost,” Swallows chairman David Mogashoa told SoccerLaduma.
“However, because the Chiefs were interested and we value what they did for us while we were in the lower division, we didn't hesitate to say, 'It's fine, you can have him.' However, we expected something in return. Some supporters, I know, are concerned about the relationship, but they shouldn't be. Outside of the field of play, our connection is over; we are rivals.
“As you may recall, we were defeated by Kaizer Chiefs last season. I've stated before that the Chiefs will be given first priority on any player that the Swallows are prepared to sell, but it does not mean that we will not sell to other clubs. People have asked if Njabulo will join Sundowns, and I have replied that the Chiefs will have first choice.”
In terms of players, the Swallows have benefited from Kaizer Chiefs in recent seasons, with the likes of Given Thibedi, Yagan Sasman, and Sizwe Twala heading the other way.
