Santos FC have denied all reports linking the Cape Town-based club to purchasing the GladAfrica Championship status of Steenberg United or any other team under the Premier Soccer League (PSL) umbrella.
the People's Team said in a statement released on Saturday morning.
The People's Team, who won the PSL title in 2001/02 season, have since fallen from grace.
Nine years after their PSL title triumph, Santos were relegated to the National First Division (now known as the GladAfrica Championship) after the 2010/11 season.
Santos were then dropped again after failing to climb out of the relegation zone at the end of the 2016/17 campaign and are now playing in the Western Cape ABC Motsepe League.
