- Highlands Park co-chairperson Brad Kaftel admitted that he might be tempted to sell the club's PSL status if an attractive offer was received
- This follows the pending sale of Bidvest Wits to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila
- Kaftel said that he'd never want to sell the club, but it would make business sense to consider any attractive bids
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Highlands Park coach Owen da Gama can relate to Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt's challenging situation.
Da Gama has empathised with Hunt, who will be out of a job due to the sale of Bidvest Wits to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM).
Ten years ago, Da Gama found himself dealing with a similar situation when Silver Stars was sold to Platinum Stars.
It may be a long way off, but history could potentially repeat itself for Da Gama based on a report by IOL.
In light of the Wits sale, Highlands Park co-chairperson Brad Kaftel touched on the possibility of his club following suit.
Although Kaftel stated that selling Highlands Park would be very hard to do, he conceded that he'd have to consider any attractive offers.
Kaftel said, "At this point, we haven't sold our status. Our club is alive, well, and kicking."
"I can't say no to that. But if even we had to consider something like that, it has to make financial sense," he added.
Briefly.co.za gathered that emotions would run high if talks opened on the possibility of a sale.
Kaftel explained "I want to keep it forever. But from a financial perspective, if someone comes along and they make you a right offer, I'll say let us put it on the board for other shareholders to have a look at it."
