Lizwe has been with the team for the past four years and the club would to thank him for his professionalism, dedication and commitment to the achievement of the club objectives. He has been an integral part of our technical and the year 2019 will remain a memorable year one as he led us yet to another championship and together with his team took us to the Champions League.
Sweswe last year led the Zvishavane-based side to their third consecutive title when he took over from Norman Mapeza who quit the club in September.
The former Tsholotsho coach was part of the FC Platinum technical team when Pure Platinum won their three championships in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Recent reports had alleged that Platinum head coach Pieter de Jongh wanted him out of his technical team with the two said to have fallen out.
This is happening when FC Platinum are preparing for the start of the 2020/21 Confederation of African Football Champions League next month.
