WITH hopes of making it back to the Premier Soccer League looking dimmer with every game that passes, AmaZulu FC management are believed to have reopened negotiations with Mpumalanga Black Aces to buy their status for next season.

A source told Phakaaathi that the last two results – a draw against Mthatha Bucks and a loss to Mbombela United – have made the management look at other ways of getting the team back to the top flight. “They have tried all they can. They promised players huge bonuses if they get promoted and also bought some influential players in Siyabonga Nomvethe and Mame Niang but still things are not working out as planned,” said the source.

Meanwhile, Chippa United boss Siviwe Mpengesi might be forced to sell the club’s status due to a lack of finance at the team. A source close to Phakaaathi at the club revealed the team’s sponsorship deal with the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality is not going well – the money which the club is getting for relocating to the province is too little, with the municipality not benefiting.

Phakaaathi understands AmaZulu could also be interested in buying the Chippa United franchise. - Supplied.
