'Swallows relegation has been a long time coming'
Roger De Sa says the Dube Birds have not been performing for a while and the results are now showing.
CAPE TOWN - Roger de Sa believes Moroka Swallows possible relegation has been a long time coming.
De Sa's Ajax Cape Town inflicted a killer blow to Swallows survival hopes with a 2-1.
The Birds are now bottom of the log with their final game against Bloemfontein Celtic tomorrow and De Sa says his former team have not been performing for a while.
"It's not a good thing to see but it's part of the game, it's part of life. That's the way it is. I don't think they got relegated last night (Wednesday), I think it's been done probably along the season and maybe prior to the season, you don't know."
De Sa says he feels for teams who are going to get relegated.
"If I was at Ajax and I needed a win to escape relegation you know, what do you think, do you think Swallows would have any feelings for me? That's the way it is. Never mind Swallows, I think if I had to play anybody and I see them getting relegated, for me it's not a good feeling."
Meanwhile, Swallows coach Craig Rosslee said it's up to his players to look within themselves for motivation in their relegation battle.
Rosslee said only the players can get the result they need and all they need now is positive atmosphere to stay in the PSL.
"The players now are going to have to find strength within themselves to complete the job. So we can go win the game and the results don't go our way, that's going to be the travesty."
Rosslee says the reality is they can't only rely on themselves for their survival.
"The other results have to go in our favour, so the point that we lost has made it extremely difficult because psychologically that would have helped us for the teams below us and above us."
