Ntopwa FC owner Isaac ‘Jomo’ Osman has said he would consider selling the TNM Super League club to serious buyers.
“Let me make it clear. The side is not for sale but if serious buyers approached me I could consider selling them,” he said.
Osman said even though the club was facing financial hardships, selling the club at the moment was not an option.
“My team is there to give opportunity to youthful players who are often overlooked elsewhere. We believe some of them fail to realise their potential because they are unjustly overlooked.
“This is why I can only sell the team to those that will maintain our philosophy to avoid cutting the dream of the youngsters,” he said.
Osman also refused to disclose the value of the side, which earned Super League promotion in 2019.
“We cannot state our value in the papers presently. Of course, in any transaction you would expect negotiations. So we are open to negotiations,” he said.
In September last year, Osman put the club on sale due to financial woes but he later reversed the decision.
Later the same year in November, Ntopwa embarked on a commercialisation drive in its mission to become self-reliant after partnering, Tamarh Consults Limited, at Golden Peacock Hotel in Blantyre.
During the ceremony, Ntopwa auctioned last season’s debut uniform and juices.
