Bernstein: Birds to reclaim rightful place 17/11/05
Recent developments at Moroka Swallows indicate that the club are on track to reclaiming their place amongst the giants of South African soccer, according to the club's Operations Director Gavin Bernstein.

Bernstein was speaking in the aftermath of a fortnight that saw the VW backed side register a convincing 2-0 win over Coca Cola Cup challengers Jomo Cosmos and also had their midfield maestro Maimane Phiri selected for the national side.

"We are very happy with the win over Cosmos. It came at the right time, we needed the result, we have to close in on Pirates and Sundowns," said a proud Bernstein.

Swallows currently lie third in the Castle Premiership log with a 5 point deficit between them and leaders Orlando Pirates.

Asked what he thought about Phiri's call up to the national side, the articulate Bernstein said that the club was not only proud of the midfielder's achievement but also believed that another one of their players Goodman Mazibuko deserved a call up as well.

Another positive factor in the Beautiful Birds' camp was that the relationship with German motor vehicle giant Volkswagen was begining to sow positive results.

"They are an important part of the whole machinery at Swallows as they understand the popularity of soccer in our country," he revealed exclusively to SASoccer365.

"We are interacting quite well with them. Our plan to have a long term relationship with them will also provide them with great exposure for their top class products and services."

The car manufacturer's sponsorship of the PSL side has enabled the club to enter the transfer market more vigorously and this has led to better performances.

This has consequently resulted in a large chunk of their 'dormant' supporters flying back into the Birds' nest this season.
