The hierarchy of the Swaziland club has lashed out at Celtic after the South Africa outfit didn’t sign two players from Swallows who joined Siwelele for trials during the current transfer window.
The pair failed to secure contracts with Siwelele after attending trials in Free State last month, and Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco was quoted as saying the players were not what the club wanted.
Gamedze fired back saying his players had what it take to play in the PSL, claiming that the clubs couldn’t agree on a transfer fee.
“Normally, I wouldn’t be talking about the issue, but again one has to make it clear that Celtic seem to be operating in a way that showed that the right hand does not know what the left hand was doing,” Gamedze told Times of Swaziland.
“As a team, we have concluded that we were being undermined. And we wish to remind them that our players are not as desperate as those from other countries in Africa, because here they have plenty of opportunities in life to explore apart from being professional footballers.
“They can join the armed forces or obtain employment from a variety of sectors.”
