Cape Town - Platinum Stars head coach Roger de Sa has announced that the club will remain at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace for only the remainder of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership season.
De Sa backed by a consortium of businessmen based in Cape Town purchased the club for R22,5 Million from the Royal Bafokeng family on Wednesday effectively becoming the club's head coach and owner.
The former Ajax Cape Town coach revealed that the club will remain in the North West province for the remainder of the season with speculation that the franchise would then be relocated to the Mother city.
"The club will remain here for the season. Same kit, same technical team nothing will change," De Sa told reporters.
"I'm part of the entity that bought the club, there are four of us. Two guys in Cape Town and one in Johannesburg.
"Our first priority is to keep the team alive and avoid relegation. We’ll try our best to do what we believe is right to become more competitive and consistent.The deal was worth R22,5 Million.
De Sa who was previously the owner of Bidvest Wits alongside current SuperSport United head coach Eric Tinkler confirmed that the deal was done in accordance to PSL regulations.
"Our bid was fair, we followed the right channels and me being here had a little influence because I was only here for football not business," he added.
