SOCCER –WITH all that has been happening at Matsapha United, former Premier League side RSSC United still believe their team will return to their rightful owners, the Mhlume community.

RSSC was changed to Matsapha United about two seasons ago amidst concerns of their then Management Committee (MC) headed by Dumsani Dlamini, which challenged its registration with the Premier League of Swaziland (PLS) as fraudulent.

Interviewed yesterday one of the committee members (name withheld) said they had not given up their fight to have the team return back to its rightful owners.

He said they were unfazed by all that had been happening with regards to the Matsapha as everything about the team was null and void.

“We fought tooth and nail to ensure the team was not taken away from us. We are not happy with the way it was taken from us because someone just decided to claim that it belonged to him when we just thought he was assisting us financially.

“We wrote letters to both the National Football Association of Swaziland (NFAS) and PLS to rectify this matter but everything seemed to fail. Worth noting is that this was before discussions we had with the association, applying to change the team to Mhlume United after RSSC pulled out. Even then we were told that this would take about a year but a few months down the line, Matsapha United was registered in our place,” he said.

He stated that they have never stopped fighting for what was their rightfully theirs as they had a lot of history and memories with the team.

“This is our team and we will never give up on it. We strongly believe it will come back to us and when that time comes we will make sure to give it to someone, who will be aware of clear cut agreements of what is expected of him/her should they decide to sponsor us.”

He said they were not unfazed with what was happening in as far as the team’s ownership was concerned be-cause the rightful owners were the Mhlume community.
