TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi strongly believes that his side campaigning in the GladAfrica Championship should be in the Absa Premiership battling it out with the big boys and says they will be playing in the top-flight soon.
Although Sukazi deny claims that he is looking to buy the status of Bloemfontein Celtic – stating that it is “a beautiful rumour” but certainly not out the questions.
After clinching the Nedbank Cup in 2019 shocking the ‘South African cup kings’ Kaizer Chiefs in the final, many thought Galaxy would be gunning for promotion to the Absa Premiership.
But the KwaNdebele-based, Mpumalanga, outfit was struggling in 12th position on the GladAfrica Championship log standings with six games remaining before the coronavirus outbreak put a halt to the season.
“It’s either you win promotion directly or if you can’t, you acquire the status of a professional club. If there could be any club that is available today and they present themselves to us, as TS Galaxy, that is an opportunity we want. It’s an opportunity we are going to take at all costs,” he said.
“I haven’t heard as much about Bloemfontein Celtic being available but certainly if they are indeed it is an opportunity, we will pursue and maybe you never know come next season we might be in the Premier Division,” added Sukazi.
The Galaxy boss says the people of KwaNdelebe people in the province of Mpumalanga deserve to have their own team in the PSL.
“As a matter of fact they travel kilometers in their hundreds to Johannesburg, Pretoria and other places to watch professional football.
“And I thought they deserve to have a club of their own and that’s what informed obviously the establishment of TS Galaxy, so they shall remain the pillar of our strength,” said Sukazi.
“I think, surely as though we haven’t done as much as one would want, we owe them a Premier Division club and in no time in the immediate future that’s what we will deliver to them because they deserve it,” concluded Sukazi.
