At the end of last season, Stars accepted an offer from Gauteng’s MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi and a consortium that was looking to buy the club.

However, the proposed sale of Ea Lla Koto fell through, after the consortium failed to meet some of the conditions of the sale, as confirmed by the club. 

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Masehe confirmed that reports that the club was up for sale had an effect on the team’s performances and progress last season.

“Well, it played a major role towards the outcome of the season for us. Remember we started pre-season very late. Some players were sold and we also had to change coaches about three times. The better part of last season was hard on us as players and we were struggling because of those factors. It hammered our preparations for the season, but we managed to pick ourselves up and fought very hard for the team. The new players that came in also helped with their experience… the likes of Rooi (Mahamutsa), Thamsanqa (Teyise) and others. The good team and results you see now are from our struggles of last season,” said the central midfielder.
