Johannesburg – Former Bidvest Wits winger Sifiso Myeni says he was disappointed to hear the news that his old club has sold their PSL status.
Last week, National Fist Division (NFD) club Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila confirmed they had bought Wits’ top-flight status, although the deal still needed to be approved by the PSL Executive Committee before becoming official.
“It’s sad that a club with such a rich history has been sold. The owners know why they sold it, maybe it was a business decision,” said Myeni.
“I thought that it was just rumours when I heard about the sale for the first time. But when I heard TTM boss reveal on the radion that the only thing left now was for the PSL to confirm the sale, then I knew the club was gone.
“I joined the club because they had a good youth set-up. Coach Roger de Sa and Eric Tinkler gave me the break to play professional football,” Myeni added.
Myeni said he will cherish the time he spent with players like Moeneeb Josephs, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Marawaan Bantam.
“I am proud that I made history by becoming one of the first players to play at the new FNB Stadium in 2010 when we beat AmaZulu [3-0] in the Nedbank final. I made more history by winning the league with the club,” said Myeni.
