FS Stars Fan: 'The Team Won't Be Sold'

Free State Stars have coach Giovanni Solinas back after he left few months ago, citing personal problems as his reason for leaving. They are not doing well at all and have not won a match in five league games. Surely the coaching merry-go-round has affected the team and the players.

Supporters Club sat with prominent Stars supporter Tshidi Tshabalala to get he take on the matter.

Beaver Nazo: Hi Tshidi, how are you doing?

Matshediso Tshabalala: Hey Beaver, all good, all good.

BN: Tshidi, your team, Free State Stars, have made a U-turn for coach Giovanni Solinas. After he left the team earlier this year, he was then brought back and replaced the man who replaced him in the space of five games.

MT: Our management informed us when he left that it was for personal reasons, not football reasons, so we were happy when we were told that he is coming back.

BN: The team was nearly sold last season. Don't you fear they might sell it at the end of this season?

MT: No, we were scared earlier, but our management assured us that there will be no such thing. Even when you open our website or Twitter page, you will see that the team is back in full swing, so yeah, no fears. There's no talk of sale anymore!

BN: The team is not doing well at the moment. What is your take on that?

MT: We believe that we will turn the corner. Maritzburg United are our first game after the break. The management assured us that they are working on it.

BN: So you guys have a very good communication relationship with the team's management?

MT: Very much so. Even now our games are played in Orkney, we were the first ones to know that because they didn't want us to read about it in the newspapers. They explained everything to us.

BN: Tshidi, thanks for talking to us, and good luck for the season ahead.

MT: Thank you, Beaver!

Do you think Free State Stars supporters should take their club management's word that the team won't be sold?
