Moroka Swallows are reportedly up for sale and according to a source in the know, the club has been offered to the Morfou brothers.
The once giants of Soweto were recently relegated from the ABC Motsepe league into the fourth tier for the new 2017/18 season.
As reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, the crew has been informed by a source close to the club’s dealings that the Dube Birds’ brand along with their current SAB League status, has been offered to Mario and George Morfou.
The Morfou brothers were the previous owners of the Mpumalanga Black Aces franchise (now Cape Town City) and in the years of their ownership, were instrumental in the team’s journey back to South Africa’s top flight.
Indications are that management at Swallows are looking to sell the franchise to the Morfou brothers, in hopes that they are able to instil the same ambition into the Dube Birds.
However, according to a Siya source, management will only sell the franchise on the condition that the Morfou brothers will retain the club's base in Johannesburg and ensure that the logo and jersey colours remain unchanged.
It remains to be seen whether the Morfou brothers will be keen on taking up the challenge of bringing the Dube Birds back to its glory days.
