KickOff.com reported late in May that the club was apparently on the market and at the time, the club’s CEO Khumbulani Konco stated that those reports were way off the mark.
Celtic spokesperson Sello Nduna says the fans are unsettled about the rumour.
“The supporters both in and outside Bloemfontein have been calling to find out what’s going on and the answer remains the same. It is business as usual at Bloemfontein Celtic and the players have reported for training, so we are preparing for the season,” he says.
However, a source tells KickOff.com that things may be very different behind the scenes with Max Tshabalala [of Roses United] in the picture to try buy the club for about R60 million.
Tshabalala, though, refutes the claim.
“No, no, no. You are not the first person to call me about this… This [claim] is not a fact. Maybe people would wish that I buy the club, but that’s not true,” he adds.
