Money Talks, But Not Loud Enough: All Stars Say No To R9 Million Bid
All Stars FC Reject R9 Million Bid for Club Status
All Stars FC, a Motsepe Foundation Championship side, has recently rejected a R9 million offer to sell their club status. The news comes after it was confirmed that the club is up for sale, with Chairman Lunga Ncwana said to be holding out for R12 million.
Relocation to Cut Costs
All Stars, formerly known as Cape Town All Stars, had relocated from Cape Town to Gauteng ahead of the 2022/23 season in order to cut costs. The club felt that they were spending too much money on traveling to face the large number of MFC clubs based in Johannesburg and Limpopo, which have six teams.
First Bid Rejected
According to SABC Sport, a first bid of R9 million was rejected by All-Stars. Milano United is one of the teams that seem to be interested in acquiring the club status, while Black Leopards could also come into the mix should they be relegated from the National First Division.
Bad Decisions from Match Officials
A close source told iDiski Times that the club’s chairman was triggered by the recent draw against Tshakuma and what is happening in the league with a lot of bad decisions from match officials. Despite the interest from other clubs, there was an agreement that coach Badela would be given at least this season to build his team before going for promotion next season.
All Stars Stand Firm
All Stars is a team that stands firm in their decisions and does not let money sway them. It is not the first time that the team has been on sale, with rumors of a sale last season after they lost in the playoffs. However, the team’s management is focused on building a strong team and achieving success.
All Eyes on All Stars FC
The rejection of the R9 million offer by All Stars has caused a stir in the football world. Many are wondering what the team’s future holds and who will acquire their club status. All eyes are on All Stars FC, as they continue to build a strong team and remain focused on their goals.
