AmaZulu coach Brandon Truter is spitting fire. Truter told anyone, who cared to listen how his former employer, Swallows, ill-treated him.

Truter revealed that the Soweto-based club owes him his settlement.

He said this after their 1-0 victory over Swallows in the DStv Premiership encounter at the Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto on Tuesday.

Truter did not hold back his words as he blasted his ex-club.

Siphesihle Maduna scored the goal that separated the two teams in the 68th minute heading Usuthu the three points.

Truter said he feared for his life, and his family got threatened before he left swallows, adding that the win over them meant the world to him.

“The result means a lot to me, and it means the world to me, and I am over the moon about the result. God answered my prayers. The way I left Swallows was not nice, and my family got threatened, and the supporters came to my home, training and forced me to resign. They forced me out of the door, and I had to resign to protect my family, and I did not get paid my settlement. There was a buy-out clause in my contract that prevented me from leaving the club, and I could not leave out of my own free will. The supporters stopped the bus, and the security stood there and did not protect me,” said an emotional Truter.

He said he has videos and text messages to back up his story. “There was an agreement that I must not discuss this with the media, but Swallows violated the agreement by not paying me the settlement, and I am going to the PSL to force them to pay me my money I want it,” warned Truter.

Truter did not spare Swallows coach Dylan Kerr labeling him as a “cheap import” as he ripped into their champ.

He claims that Kerr had more time to turn things around. “At AmaZulu there is massive support, and I was not afforded that at Swallows, and there was little support there. Kerr had 19 games to turn it around, but for a coach that is worth his salt, he didn’t turn it around. He is a foreign coach and should do better than local coaches. We should look at local coaches and not cheap foreign imports,” added Truter.
