Wits Hit Out At Tyson/Pirates Talk

Bidvest Wits have spoken about the rumours linking their captain, Thulani Hlatshwayo, with Orlando Pirates – and it’s safe to say that they’re not happy about them…
 
 
It has been widely reported that ‘Tyson’ has become a target for the Buccaneers as they look to continue bolstering their side for the campaign ahead, but Wits’ CEO, Jose Ferreira, says that they have not been approached by their fellow title challengers, or anybody else.
 
Hlatshwayo, who was ever-present for Bafana Bafana at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt, was back in training with Wits this week following the birth of his child, and the Clever Boys insist that he will still be with them when the transfer window closes at the end of next month.
 
Speaking today, Ferreira told the media, “There’s seemingly – and quite disturbingly – obviously a media drive around Tyson… We have this every season. Where you guys get that information – I don’t know.
 
“We have not received an offer from any club for Tyson, so when you guys speculate around where he’s going next, we as a club wonder where you get this information.
 
 
“And you’ve got to ask yourself the question, if we haven’t been approached by any of the clubs that you’ve linked Tyson to, surely they would have done so if they were in fact interested – one would imagine?
 
“All that I can say is it’s rumours, and it obviously fits the agenda of some portions of the media, but if the rumours were true then surely, we would have been approached. Right now, Tyson is our player; he’s going to remain our player; he’s the captain of this team and we look forward to many, many more years of him being with us.”
