The former Orlando Pirates coach becomes the first coach to own a club in South Africa, since Jomo Sono and Jomo Cosmos

In the case of Roger De Sa, he is just one of the four new owners of Platinum Stars.

The takeover was confirmed last week when Rawat Petroleum bought Dikwena from Royal Bafokeng Holdings for R22‚5 million. 

"Yes‚ we are a consortium. The club will not be moving from here. The colours are the same‚ the name is the same‚" De Sa told the media as reported on Times Live.

"We're not looking to do anything drastic right now.

"More important is our position in the league‚ and that's the main focus‚ and to try and get out of the position we are in."

RDS also tried to ease suspicions about the controversial takeover.

"We're definitely here until the end of the season. That's non-negotiable.

"But (after that) why should we move if we've got one of the best facilities in the country and a beautiful stadium and a city that kind of accepts the team‚ and most of the employees work from here?

"We don't want to go and fight it out with other teams for stadiums and training venues and so on.

"So for now‚ it's a great facility. I think it is the best in the country."
