TS Galaxy owner and businessman Tim Sukazi says he is still keen to buy a Premier Soccer League (PSL) franchise, and admits to having made an enquiry with Highlands Park.
Sukazi reportedly tried to buy out Bloemfontein Celtic earlier this season, but the club instead sought alternative investment, while he says he also talked with Bidvest Wits, who have since sold their top-flight status to National First Division (NFD) side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.
Now Highlands Park, via co-chairman Larry Brookstone, have explained that they have received a significant offer which may tempt the Lions of the North to sell – even though they were not contemplating such action.
“I started with Wits, then Highlands Park,” Sukazi told Phakaaathi, before insisting that Celtic was too expensive a prospect for him.
“I left them [Celtic] to do their own thing. Definitely not, I don’t have that kind of money!”
The businessman continued, “It depends when next season starts [on whether he will try and buy another top-flight franchise].
“If it starts tomorrow, then no, but if it starts in November, yes, I will still remain in the market.”
South Africa’s PSL season has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus, with the fate of the 2019-20 campaign set to be decided in a major meeting on Monday 27 July.
