But Khoza has warned that the new arrivals would not guarantee immediate success.

Speaking to SowetanLive, Khoza said:

“In football you can’t expect anything”

He said he is making these comments to protect himself from a heart attack, if things don't go as planned. He added that they, as club owners, could not predict the future

"I want to live a bit longer because football‚ as the Baroka coach (Kgoloko Thobejane) said‚ it’s a dangerous game‚ it can kill you."
