Official: PSL Club’s Transfer Guru Steps Down!

Bidvest Wits have confirmed in a statement that Jose Ferreira, their transfer guru and CEO, has stepped down from his position for “personal and private” reasons.

The Siya crew broke the story last Friday, with an official announcement expected to be made earlier this week – and Ferreira has now officially resigned from the post.

“He has, however, agreed to remain as a consultant and adviser to the club for the foreseeable future,” read a statement from the club.

Ferreira had been Wits CEO for seven years and was key in bringing serial title-winning coach Gavin Hunt to the club, with the Clever Boys subsequently clinching their first ever championship in their 96-year history. He has also been credited for the club’s impressive transfer activities in recent times.  

On stepping down, the veteran administrator, who also sits on the Premier Soccer League executive committee, said: “It is with deep regret that I have, for personal reasons, requested the chairman (Alan Fainman) of Bidvest Wits to release me as CEO of the club. On a personal level, 2019 has been a very difficult one, and the many uninterrupted years of service to the game of football that I love so much have taken their toll.”

Ferreira added that he would take “some time off” but would not be lost to the game. He of course now stays on as a consultant and will no doubt still attempt to bring more success to the club alongside Hunt and his backroom staff.
