Local football agent, Tim Sukazi, has denied reports linking him with the takeover of Cape Town All Stars.

Rumours doing the rounds in the local football fraternity indicate that Igugu Lekapa’s current owner, Lunga Ncwana, is open to selling the club’s NFD franchise, should he receive a price he deems right.

While Sukazi, who is one of the prominent local football agents, has denied purchasing the Mother City outfit, numerous sources throughout South Africa have indicated otherwise.

It is believed that an offer of around R6 million for the purchase of the NFD club was turned down. The Siya crew has been informed that earlier this year, buyers were in discussion over a proposed deal, which was turned down.

According to sources, the sale of the club is on the cards, with Sukazi believed to be close to agreeing to a deal.

“All Stars are not very clear who the buyer is. The club’s keeping a very low profile. They’re doing exactly the same as what Mpumalanga Black Aces did when John Comitis took them over. But it seems Sukazi is involved,” a source told Soccer Laduma.

The agent has already allegedly been very influential behind the scenes at the club with acquiring numerous players over the years.

“Tim’s always been involved. Remember, he manages Stars’ coach, Patrick Mabedi,” said another source.

One insider told the Siya crew that he’d heard similar news and was afraid of losing his job if Stars re-located to Johannesburg.

Asked for a comment on news of the sale, the club’s CEO Lebogang Ndebele said, “We all don’t know anything.”

Sukazi denied reports about the takeover at All Stars. He confirmed the ownership of Mpumalanga ABC Motsepe outfit, TS Galaxy FC, who finished as runners-up to champions, Acornbush United.

 “That’s not true. Lunga’s still 100 percent the owner. I wonder why Cape Town people are talking about it. But I’m glad they seem to be very interested in what I do. This is great, as it means one day when we have a team in the higher ranks, they’ll have all that following.

“In the next 18 months or so, there’s no doubt that you’ll see so much talent coming through TS Galaxy,” he told the Siya crew.

As long as it benefits the team its fine.If a person realise he is struggling to manage a team he must sell to allow the team to move foward.Egocentrism kills our football.Where is African Wanderers,Bush Bucks,Swallows etc.

It's a free country Sukazi has made more money from poor underprivileged players,so he probably can afford to buy a small club
