- It was recently revealed that Premier Soccer League has approved the sale and purchase of Thohoyandou-based Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila
- The troubled football club was bought by pharmaceutical businessman Abram Sello
- Sello purchased the club for an estimated R40 million and apparently has very ambitious plans to move them forward
Esteemed sportscaster Robert Marawa recently took to his Twitter page to share a statement made by the PSL which reveals that they have approved the sale of the Venda club, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.
"The Executive Committee of the League today considered an application by Black Gold Trust to transfer the club, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila to a corporation by the name of Protoscape 202 cc," reads the first half of the statement.
Earlier reports reveal that pharmaceutical businessman, Abram Sello is the one who had bought the troubled club for an estimated R40 million. While he is yet to reveal what plans he has for the club, it has been reported that he will be moving them from Thohoyandou in Venda to Polokwane, Limpopo.
A SowetanLive article writes that Sello owns a team in the ABC Motsepe League called Olezar, making him no stranger to the exciting world of soccer. They also reported that Sello is to reveal more about his plans for the club sometime this week.
Meanwhile, locals have had this to say about the news:
@Calvin_Lentswan said this about the club's previous owner:
"What were his plans when he was buying the club? That's a character of a weak man to leave things you started hanging."
"Does the PSL even ask for certified copies of ID when they do due diligence?"
In other Briefly.co.za sports news, outspoken former Kaizer Chiefs player Junior Khanye has asked the team's mid-fielder Siphelele Ntshangase to leave the team. According to Khanye, Ntshangase is under too much pressure at Kaizer Chiefs and will fair better playing for another team such as Chippa United, Black Leopards, or even AmaZulu.
Speaking candidly during a recent interview, Khanye said that Ntshangase, who has made only 5 appearances on the field for Kaizer Chiefs in all their competitions this season, does not have a future with the team and should rather seek greener pastures elsewhere.
"He can even go back to Baroka because those coaches there also believe in ball players. To be honest‚ he doesn’t have a future at Chiefs because he has been sitting there for a long time and nothing has happened."
