Swallows coaching changes are confusing| Opinion.

When I look at how things are going at Swallows FC right now, things are very bad.

Their coach Brandon Truter has been on special and I don’t understand why this is the case. I think that’s where some of Swallows’ problems are.

He has done well since he arrived at the club, but this season I don’t think they gave him much of a chance. I obviously don’t know everything that’s happening at the club, but I feel having the coach away from the club at this point was not a good idea.

And you must remember that a situation like this can confuse the players. There are players who probably speak to the coach now and then.

So, if the coach is not there, maybe he will tell one of the guys that he is no longer there, and then that player will go to the rest of the team and tell them that the coach is no longer with the team.

So, it can be a confusing situation. They’ve put in Simo Dladla as the caretaker coach. Swallows are a big team and they must also have a coach that will be respected by players.

There’s one thing you need to understand about football… You can take Benni McCarthy and make him the coach of Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs, but you cannot take someone who has not won anything and then you make him a coach of a club like that.

At the end of the day, the players lack respect for some one that they do not know. That’s the honest truth and we cannot run away from that. Swallows have given Simo big shoes to fill.

Yes, it’s important for young coaches like me and him to be given an opportunity, but we need to be groomed because the PSL is another level.

I cannot go and coach Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns or Pirates. Yes, players may respect me, but it’s another level and I must understand that. Those are big teams.
