Mahlamba confirms that he has been approached by ‘way too many people’ but his club still remains available to any interested buyers for the second year running.
Though Mahlamba doesn’t reveal the price KickOff.com has gathered it is pegged at R7-R8 million depending on the payment terms.
“I am still waiting for someone serious enough to come to an agreement with me,” says Mahlamba.
“I have been approached by way too many people some of whom have told me they have the money but have still failed to pay. Some of them will request meetings and then just disappear after having come to a verbal agreement with me on what I want. I am actually not the only first division club owner willing to sell because of the fact that it is way too expensive to run a first division club on the grant that we are getting,” says Mahlamba.
Clubs that have approached Mahlamba include ATLIE, Garankuwa United, African Wanderers, Alexandra United and Hanover Park amongst others.
Several first division club owners are willing to sell due to the issue of the ‘little grant’ that clubs receive from the PSL and the high cost of running a club in the First Division.
