Celtic Slam Sale Reports As ‘Untruthful And Misleading’
Bloemfontein Celtic have slammed reports regarding the sale of the club as ‘untruthful and misleading’ after they caused tension in Mangaung.
There have been reports that Siwelele have already been sold to an unnamed businessman from Kimberley, with talk of the club eventually being moved there after the decision to play some games in the Northern Cape.
These reports resulted in growing tensions in the current home of Celtic, with the club’s loyal supporters allegedly upset at the impending departure of their team.
However, the club says that reports are premature, saying via their official Twitter account, “The story that was published on Fri 25 May in the Daily Sun, claiming that Celtic has been sold to an anonymous Kimberly businessman is untruthful and misleading.
“Unfortunately, the supporters have been misinformed and a result there has been tension in Mangaung with Masele taking to the streets to protest.”
According to reports, the sale of Celtic is worth in the region of R60m.
