"I don't even know about the sale of the club, I've told you guys about this, I'm not even in the bio-bubble," Mnisi says.

"Call Brad and the players, I'm not even with the team. Again, I don't know about the sale of the club."

"As of today we haven't signed any agreement with anyone but there have been talks with different people who want to buy the club for months now.

"We are still in communication with potential buyers. The players will be the first ones to know once everything is concluded."
