Platinum Stars deny sale talk

Platinum Stars have dismissed reports that an agreement has been reached for the sale of the club.
The sale of Dikwena has been the subject of speculation for the past few months. And while club chairman Cliff Ramoroa insists no deal has been struck with a prospective buyer, he said they are "intending to dispose the club in future".
"Platinum Stars take this opportunity to dismiss the fake news that the club has been sold. It’s also fake and unfounded that we will be announcing or be involved in any media briefing regarding the sale. Platinum Stars is not involved in any form of media briefing to announce anything,” said Ramoroa.
Ramoroa brushed aside the talk as a ploy to derail the team, which currently props up the Premiership standings with a point from four games.
“These are intentions to defocus and distract the team from its focus on doing well in the Absa Premiership. There is no agreement in place with any prospective buyer. We are intending to dispose the club in future but the normal process will be followed and interested parties will be called to make proposals. So far our focus is on doing well in the league.”
He added: “We want to reassure our supporters that we have our eyes on the ball. We are steadfast in ensuring that we achieve the objectives we set for ourselves at the beginning of the season. We urge our supporters to continue rallying behind the team.”
