Baroka Football Club (FC) chairman, Khurishi Mphahlele has responded to the allegations claiming that his team was on sale.

The club noted with disquiet, the unfortunate rumours of the sale of their club.

According to the chairman, those reports were blatant lies.  

“The club is not sold and not on sale,” said Mphahlele.

He denies that mogul from Giyani had bought the club and finalised the deal on Monday night.

“I don’t know anything about selling the club unless if somebody is selling it somewhere,” he said.

“There’s no way where I can wake up in the middle of the night and decide to sell the team, no way,” Baroka boss explained.

Mphahelele maintained that he is the only one who has power to sell the team and he has no idea of selling it.

“It’s fake story. It’s a lie. It’s untrue. Actually they are dreaming,” he consecutively reiterated

He had backed up his sentiments mentioning the fact that he is now developing fitness training.

“Construction is underway in the village to develop fitness training because this team have a long way future,” said Mphahlele

He lambasted the allegations says no one has ever came forward regarding purchasing the club

“It’s an urgent aiming to destabilise the team because we are doing the good things. When you do better things and people who can’t do them start to badmouth at you,” he emphasised.

“Look now the Nedbank cup is going to start and we are complying with the Premier Soccer League demands. We’ve got the potential to win another trophy,” said Bakgaga manager

He said a challenge is the institution of growing.

Meanwhile PSL chairman Doctor Irvin Khoza said they have unanimously agreed that the games resume on August 8.

“It’s all system go. We have a compliance officer. All the clubs except one have complied. If you don’t comply, you are out,” Khoza explained

Khoza said the season will resume with the Nedbank cup semi-finals, with teams to enter the bio bubble on August 7 in Gauteng

South African Football Association (SAFA) has welcomed the decision by the PSL to resume the 2019/20 season.
