KwaZulu-Natal businessman, Lebogang Mokoena, is confident of acquiring a stake in the cash-strapped PSL club Bloemfontein Celtic. Several potential buyers are in a last-ditch effort to take charge of the hugely followed club.
Glad Africa championship side TS Galaxy owner, Tim Sukazi, has also confirmed that he’s been in negotiations to buy Celtic and relocate it to Mpumalanga.
Mokoena, who is originally from Bloemfontein, says his logistics entity is ready to bankroll Celtic, which has been in dire financial straits.
Mokoena says his ultimate goal is to take assume full ownership of the popular green and white club.
“It’s also a dream for everybody to be a chairman. So, I think in the long run we can look at, maybe me saying to Bra Max, after working with him and understanding the culture of Bloemfontein Celtic or so to say, I’m ready to be a chairman. At the stage that we are in right now, we’re still negotiating. We have conditions based on the sponsorship or so. So, we’re still looking at them. I think we will be resuming on Monday, but it’s confidently going to happen,” says Mokoena.
