Celtic still Tshabalalas’

2016-03-09 06:00

BLOEMFONTEIN. – The sale of Bloemfontein Celtic has been cancelled.

This comes after Max Tshabalala, the club’s chairman, announced that he would be putting the club on the market and that he wanted out.

He further confirmed his intentions of selling Celtic on Monday, 29 February, at Siwelele Park in Bloemfontein during a press conference.

On Friday morning (04/03), however, it transpired that there was allegedly a leaked staff letter revealing that the club was not for sale.

Allegedly the letter stated that the club was not for sale and would no longer be sold “under any circumstances”.

Sello Nduna, the club’s spokesman, has confirmed that Celtic is no longer for sale.

On Sunday (06/03) the club held a meeting at the Pax Nova Hall in Botshabelo, where it engaged with its supporters and members of the community to discuss the recent events.

The club’s founding father, Dr Petrus Molemela, attended the meeting and even addressed the packed hall.

One of the key issues Celtic conceded was that there was a clear communication gap between the management of the team and the side’s faithful supporters, something that they felt needed to be remedied.

Cobus Bredenkamp, the team’s lawyer, also produced documentation verifying the purchase of the team and ownership to the Tshabalala family.

The management of Phunya Sele Sele also revealed that they had met with Tshabalala and that they had asked him to reconsider the sale of the club, because it was an emotional decision.

As it stands at this point in time, Celtic will remain in the ownership of the Tshabalala family. – KickOff.com
