Johannesburg - Maritzburg United chairperson Farook Kadodia has confirmed there are
no plans to sell the club to any Limpopo businessmen or consortium.
The news broke early on Wednesday morning that the Team of Choice
board members were considering selling to Sekhukhune-based businessmen.
However, Kadodia was quick to dismiss those reports and believes
they were manifested to disrupt the team's preparations ahead of their
upcoming Telkom Knockout clash against Moroka Swallows, as well as the
following PSL ties against leaders Kaizer Chiefs and high flying
He said: "There is absolutely no truth in this. The first time I
heard of this was when I was contacted by a reporter this morning to
confirm this story.
"It is disappointing that rumours like these surface at such a
crucial time, with the huge investment made into the team and the good
start to season, this seems just to be forces looking to destabilise the
club ahead of our three huge upcoming fixtures.
"These irresponsible rumours devalue the brand which we are
working so tirelessly to grow and I want to re-iterate to our fans,
sponsors and partners that after refusing to relocate to the Nelson
Mandela Bay Stadium the Board of Directors made a firm commitment to
ensure that the club will remain in Pietermaritzburg and look to grow
from strength to strength in the 'City of Choice'."
