Baroka FC have refuted the reports about the sale of the club’s Absa Premiership status as the team is preparing for the resumption of the 2019/20 season.
Reports have emerged that the Limpopo club has received an offer to sell its topflight status to a businessman belonging to a bus company which is said to be based in Giyani.
According to the reports, the businessman allegedly offered Baroka chairman Khurishi Mphahlele in the region of R30 million for the sale of the club.
The 2018 Telkom Knockout champions, who are this season's Nedbank Cup semi-finalists, have issued a statement dismissing the sale reports.
"Baroka FC have noted with disquiet the unfortunate rumours of the sale of the club. Chairman Khurishi Mphahlele takes this opportunity to categorically refute what he deems as blatant lies. THE CLUB IS NOT SOLD AND IS NOT ON SALE," Baroka confirmed on the club's official Twitter account.
