Cape Town - The PSL have confirmed that it was they who put an end
to AmaZulu’s attempt to buy their way back into the league.
AmaZulu had reportedly reached an agreement with Mpumalanga
Black Aces to buy out their PSL status.
The PSL denied the request of the sale presumably
because it did not comply with certain legal requirements around promotion and
The league released a statement on Thursday afternoon
confirming that it was indeed them who prevented the sale from going through.
“The Premier Soccer League Executive Committee met
yesterday, Wednesday, 08 July 2015 to discuss an application for a transaction
between Mpumalanga Black Aces FC and Amazulu FC.
“Following deliberations, the PSL Executive Committee
did not approve this application,” the PSL statement read.
With this move the PSL appear to have now set a
president around issues of promotion and the purchasing of clubs.
