Will Aces star performance be (de)stabilised by new owners?

These, is among questionacess bandied out by players and fans who are worried about the status quo of the club.

Although both club chairmen, Mario Morfou and George Morfou (brothers) did not say how much is ‘lucrative’ that former Ajax Cape Town boss John Comitis handed them, one thing for sure it remains a huge chunk of moola.

On Metro FM last night with Robert Marwa, Mario indicated the deal comes with clause such as keeping the coach, maintaining the core team but what was not clear is the naming rights, which he said is still up for talks as soon as Comitis is back in the country.

“We shall meet and finalise the issue of naming rights but we still own Black Aces. Comitis will decide what to do with the team or rename it but Aces is our naming right.”

“Our stance is maintain the team in Joburg for six months before taking it to Cape Town but truly speaking he’ll decide what to do. He owns the club. We can’t dictate.”

Asked what led to the selling of the club, Mario said sadly that his father once told him they cannot have two pastors.

“One must be sacrificed”, and that’s what happened a reference to their multitude of businesses, which he admitted “took too much of our time from the team”.

Going forward:”We will continue with our academy and who knows, we might be back after a year or two?”

Posed if they’re interested in buying the demoted to ABC Motsepe amateur ranks Moroka Swallows, Mario said “anything is possible in football”.
