Platinum Stars Football Club has on Monday dismissed reports claiming the club had been sold.
Dikwena chairman Cliff Ramoroa said news that the club has been sold should be regarded as false.
“Platinum Stars take this opportunity to dismiss the fake news that the club has been sold. It’s also fake and unfounded that we will be announcing or be involved in any media briefing regarding the sale. Platinum Stars is not involved in any form of media briefing to announce anything,” said Ramoroa.
Ramoroa said the rumours were nothing but a ploy to derail the progress of the team.
“These are intentions to defocus and distract the team from its focus on doing well in the Absa Premiership. There is no agreement in place with any prospective buyer. We are intending to dispose the club in future but the normal process will be followed and interested parties will be called to make proposals. So far our focus is on doing well in the league,” said Ramoroa.
Ramoroa said the Platinum Stars board, management, staff, technical team and players were focused on doing what’s best for the club.
“We want to reassure our supporters that we have our eyes on the ball. We are steadfast in ensuring that we achieve the objectives we set for ourselves at the beginning of the season. We urge our supporters to continue rallying behind the team,” said Ramoroa.
