Premier Soccer League outfit Bloemfontein Celtic have responded to ‘fake rumours’ that the club was being purchased by the owners of TS Galaxy.
Phunya Sele Sele have had several offers for the club’s Absa Premiership status but have now reassured fans that the club is not for sale.
However, TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi stated:
‘The team will definitely relocate but that won’t mean we will abandon the supporters in Bloemfontein.’
A statement on the official Bloemfontein Celtic Twitter account from club owner Max Tshabalala read:
‘There are currently rumours that the club has been sold and that has caused panic to our players, staff, supporters and sponsors.
‘All the news and articles about the club being for sale is fake news.
‘There are no offers to sell the club and the club is not sold.
‘We urge people not to believe anything they see nor hear from the media concerning the sale of the club.
‘The club is in the process of securing a sponsorship deal and all that has been said, slows down our progress of securing the deal.
‘We accept that there had been enquiries concerning the sale of the club from different stakeholders but nothing concrete was achieved.’
