Following all the speculation in recent weeks regarding the sale of Bloemfontein Celtic, Siwelele fans have revealed who they think should be the club’s next owners.
For weeks, TS Galaxy chairman and owner Tim Sukazi has been tipped as the man to take over the Mangaung outfit.
Sukazi has even gone as far as stating that he has secured an agreement to purchase the club, and only needed to fulfil the conditions of the agreement.
Fans are split on Sukazi’s proposed takeover. While he could save the club from its financial turmoil under current owner Max Tshabalala, his intentions to relocate the club to the Mpumalanga province does not resonate with the Siwelele faithful.
Prominent businessman, Lebogang Mokoena, who hails from Bloemfontein although based in KZN, who has a successful logistics business, is another said to be interested in acquiring a stake in his hometown club.
Avid Celtic supporter, affectionately known as Station Walesele has weighed in on who he thinks should be the next man to lead the club
“Lebogang Mokoena who is a well-known businessman from Bloemfontein is one of the names that we would love to see taking over the team. He can bail out the team and take it to the next level. This is someone who knows the culture of the team, and he has genuine love for the team.
“Even the former owner Jimmy Augousti is one of the people who have vowed to help keep the team in Bloemfontein.
“We want to see this team remain in Bloemfontein and the only reason we have not protested is because we are professional and we have not heard anything from the club as yet,” he concluded.
