The new Chairman of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, Dr Abram Sello has revealed his future plans to change the name of the club. Dr Sello bought the Limpopo-based club from embattled former owner Masala Lawrence Mulaudzi, who dismally failed to keep the club's finances afloat barely six months after buying the now-defunct Bidvest Wits franchise.
Sello has reiterated that the club will remain in Limpopo as he also is originally from the province, and he will be doing so for the people of Limpopo, however, he has also comfirmed that he will change the club’s name at the end of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership campaign.
"We will stick in Limpopo, we are in Limpopo and I'm originally Limpopian and I'm proud to keep that, and not for me but for the people of Limpopo and also for the diversity of the league all around the country," Sello told KickOff Magazine.
He furthermore revealed that he is actually based in Johannesburg where he is working, and he is likely going to relocate the club from the dusty streets of Thohoyandou to the City, probably in Polokwane.
Moreover, Sello also said he would love to keep the original supporters of Vhadau Vha Damani, as he believes they have full grasp of how football business transactions operate, similarly he indicated that the club will also have to make a new fanbase.
"Yes I do have work in Joburg but at the end of the day I think let me keep it where it is, the only difference is I will just move it to the city compared to where it was in Thohoyandou.
"But we will keep those supporters and make up the new ones, and I hope they understand the business transactions. We don't want to lose them. So we won't move it out of Limpopo, so far now we won't," he added.
Pertaining to the name change, Sello shed some light as far as the new name could be, saying that they might use the name of another club which they had in the ABC Motsepe league, which has been trending, but he cautioned that the he will not dictate as far as the decision is concerned.
"The club name obviously is going to change at the end of the season, and then we will see what name comes up depending on our board's approval with the League. We can use our name which has been trending in the ABC, or we can come up with a new," he continued.
Sello reportedly forked out a whopping R42-million to purchase the club, but a large chunk of that money is said to have to gone to settle a massive R15-million debt the club had accrued under Mulaudzi's tenure.
Currently, Vhadau Vha Damani are embroiled in a relegation dogfight as they sit precariously last on the DStv Premiership standings with a solitary victory to show for their. Newly-appointed head coach, Dylan Kerr will hope to change their fortunes as quickly as he possible.
