Rovers’ Sale Approved

The PSL Executive Committee have approved the sale of financially-strapped National First Division side, Backburn Rovers during a meeting, but the new owner’s due diligence clause might yet scupper the deal.

The PSL’s head of communication Connie Motshumi confirmed that the sale has gone through.

“The club has been sold to Primrose Trading, it was approved last Thursday,” she told Soccer-Laduma.

Nino Chidoni, the Durban-based businessman, who is behind the takeover of Dumisani Mcedani’s struggling team, initially had a week’s due diligence from that date (November 28) to make a final decision as to whether he’ll go ahead with the deal or pull out.

However, with time running out fast, Chidoni is considering extending the period whereby important details can be evaluated.

“I’m battling to get info and may extend due diligence,” he told Soccer-Laduma. “I’m not taking over Dumisani Mcedani’s company, only the rights of the club. It’s an interesting venture for me, quite an experience but I’m not venturing into all those skeletons.”

One of his biggest concerns is their current lack of form with Amarover currently sitting in the relegation zone, their last win coming way back in October and having lost to lowly FC Cape Town and Roses United.
