Phiri sees Swallows success 26/07/05
Veteran Moroka Swallows midfielder Alfred Phiri has promised the Dube Birds supporters that they are going to see a much better performance from him and the whole team this coming season.

The Beautiful Birds faded away toward the end of last season after a promising start to the campaign, something the former Ajax Cape Town man believes could be attributed to the sale of Lungisani Ndlela.

The lanky striker joined SuperSport United and has since gone on to feature for Bafana Bafana, impressing all and sundry with his performances in the Concacaf Gold Cup.

"Lungisani leaving really set us back a great deal," Phiri said. "He added a different dimension to our game and the guys were really sad to see him go."

But Phiri believes fans can rest assured, saying the problem has been solved after the club signed two strikers from Senegal and Namibia, Mane Niang and Enrico Botes.

"Gavin Hunt went into Africa to look for top strikers and I think he got what will makes us a team to be contenders of the league honours in the coming season in these two players."

The arrival of Niang is especially pleasing, with Phiri saying he is even taller than the departed Ndlela.

As for his own game, Phiri admits he struggled initially following his move from Cape Town, but says he is settled now and looking forward to showing his best form to the Birds supporters.

"Last season I was still new at the club. I was still trying to fit in the whole structure of Swallows and the team did well, but I think this season is going to be different. I am more at home than my first season," said the former Bafana Bafana player.
