After the top PSL coach was placed on special leave by the club management, this is what’s next


It’s always unfortunate to see technical teams being chopped and changed. However, everything about football is based on results and you’re as good as your last match. The club management has certain things that they have to look at before even releasing or placing a coach on special leave. Sometimes such findings might not be appropriate to the club’s supporters, but the management feels they know what’s best at that moment. Now, it has been reported that the initial date for Swallows FC head coach Brandon Truter’s return to the hot seat has been revealed. This follows after he was placed on special leave within this week. 

This has placed his future on the line at Swallows as he didn’t have an ideal start to the 2021/22 season. After he was thrashed 3-0 by SuperSport United, that’s when the Dube Birds management decided to put him on leave. At the moment, the Soweto giants assistant coach Simo Dladla has been put in charge of the team for now, since nothing has been confirmed about Truter’s position at the club. According to, it has been stated that Truter will get back to the Dube Birds, the exact date isn’t known though. Initially, he was supposed to return after two matches against Cape Town City, one in the DStv Premiership and the other one in the MTN8 second-leg. Then after that, the Dube Birds will battle it out against Mamelodi Sundowns. Ideally, Truter was supposed to be back for the Downs game, however, the issue was that he didn’t have enough time to prepare his team. 

Now, it has been reported that he should return at Dobsonville Stadium after the FIFA break, which means he will have 14 days before playing against Stellenbosch FC in the league. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that it will happen, as we all know that the special leave can mean a team is sacking their coach. Only time will tell if Truter will be back in action at Swallows or not.
