Two more players leave Swallows



Moroka Swallows have began a revamp of their squad for the upcoming season after the disappointment of missing out on a place in the top eight by announcing they will not be renewing the contracts of imports Cheick Cisse and Oscar Machapa.

The pair follow Bennett Chenene, David Mathebula and Sibusiso Khumalo out of the club.

Chenene and Mathebula were signed on pre contracts by SuperSport United in January and their departure had been known about for some time, as has the imminent departure of the youthful midfielder Khumalo, who has signed to go to Mamelodi Sundowns.

But the announcement about Cisse and Machapa’s future in the first in what is expected to be a substantial list of players set to be released by the Dube Birds.

Mai-born Cisse spent three seasons at the Birds but made just 13 starts and scored a single goal.

Zimbabwe international Machapa is also at the end of a three year deal, having also been relegated to bit-part status over the last Absa Premiership season.

This season he did not start a single game for Swallows, coming on rather as a substitute.
