Strive Masiyiwa Says He Never Tried To Buy Supersport United Football Club: "I Have Never Heard Of Them"

Zimbabwe billionaire Strive Masiyiwa dispelled rumours that alleged he had launched a bid to acquire SuperSport United Football Club - a South African professional football club based in Atteridgeville, Pretoria. 

"With all due respect to the club and its fans, I had actually never heard of them," says Strive Masiyiwa in a statement seen by Greedysouth. "I’m sure they must be a great club but this is not my business. I don’t go around trying to buy sports teams. Even if you offered me the best sports team for $10, I would still not buy it because I don’t believe in buying businesses one knows nothing about. Sports is a serious business just like telecoms or mining or fashion; only I’m not into the business of sport." he continues.
