PSL Return For Ambitious Club Chairmen?
PSL Could Be Set For More Club Sales
A return to top-flight football could be on the cards for club chairmen, Mario and George Morfou.
As reported edition 1070 of Soccer Laduma, the Morfou brothers – the former owners of Mpumalanga Black Aces – are believed to be considering a return to Mzansi’s top-flight with another club of their own.
The last time they were in the elite league, the Morfou brothers were the owners of Aces before they sold their PSL franchise to John Comitis in 2016, which saw AmaZayoni renamed to Cape Town City and relocated to the Mother City.
For the time being, the Morfou brothers are the owners of Alexandra Black Aces, a team campaigning in the ABC Motsepe League. However, they are said to be seriously considering making a return to Mzansi’s top-flight, with an intention of buying a new PSL franchise or an NFD status, according to sources in the know.
Since selling their PSL status, the Morfou brothers have been linked with buying clubs in both the NFD and PSL. They were linked to Platinum Stars before the Siya crew broke the news that a Roger de Sa-led consortium from Cape Town bought the club’s PSL status.
Recent reports have also linked the Morfous with NFD side, Stellenbosch FC. Sources have since confirmed that the two brothers are on the lookout for a PSL or NFD status, though have not yet agreed to any deal.
In confirming the sale of MP Black Aces in May of 2016, Mario and George assured the club’s fans that someday they would be back in top-flight football, after being with the team for over 14 years.
