However, Dr Irvin Khoza has revealed that Patrice Motsepe's take over of the PSL's second tier was not something that was planned, as he explained that Patrice Motsepe took over as the PSL's second tier sponsor after the previous sponsor GladAfrika unexpectedly pulled out of their sponsorship at the last minute without an explanation.
Dr Irvin Khoza says that he was left with no other choice but to pick up the phone and contact Patrice Motsepe at the last minute to ask him to replace GladAfrika as the official sponsor for the PSL's second tier after GladAfrika expectedly pulled out.
