Nyatama Gets New Role, Praises Swallows Players

Musa Nyatama, the temporary head coach of Swallows FC, hailed the players' tenacity in Saturday's loss to Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates.

Bienvenu Eva Nga's goal in the 10th minute gave the Buccaneers a 1-0 victory over the Dube Birds to start the season.

In control of the team as head coach Dylan Kerr waited for his work permit, Nyatama was listed as the assistant coach on the roster for the match on Saturday.

"Not the outcome we desired. But I'm really happy for the lads. They fought hard; the second half was a little bit better. We were a little sluggish in the first half, but moving ahead, I believe the players will succeed. After the game, Nyatama told SuperSport, "I'm really pleased of them.

As I already mentioned, [Thembinkosi] Lorch and Kabelo Dlamini at the number 10 position caused us some difficulty in the first half. However, when Bafana [Tlakusani Mthethwa] entered the game in the second half, he was ready to shut those guys down.

I believe that in the second half we had a few opportunities, but Patjie was just unlucky because I thought he should have taken a shot there.

Nyatama continued, "I guess I will have to look at that sentence if you're asking about the punishment that wasn't delivered (call). I didn't notice it, he continued (laughing).

But just in case... Also, he needs to understand that all he needs to do to score is take a shot when he has the ball in the box.

If not for the bad refereeing, Swallows would have defeated these pitiful Rats. Imagine Seallows suffering a 1-0 defeat with Coach absent.
