Truter: Lebese didn't suit our style of play

Swallows coach Brandon Truter says the DStv Premiership club decided against signing George Lebese as they felt he didn't fit into the squad dynamic.

The 32-year-old former Kaizer Chiefs winger has been without a club since leaving American side Switchbacks.

He had been on trial with Swallows with the aim of earning a contract, but is now clubless again after being let go.

Truter said on FAR Post: "You can be the best player but if it affects the whole make-up of the squad and how we want to play then I would rather side with the team than the individual.

"Lebese, what a player. Top, top quality. Unfortunately, I wouldn't say we didn't reach an agreement, as George mentioned in the media. We didn't get to the negotiation part, I have to be honest in that regard.

"Unfortunately for George, his style of play and what he can bring to the table didn't really fit Swallows' way. We needed to look at the club first before we considered anything else.

"We have a playing style at Swallows that we want to maintain and there are certain aspects within the team that are non-negotiable."
