Following a Sunday paper article that Sbahle Mpisane is reportedly being groomed to replace Minnie Dlamini on Soccerzone, the fitness junkie took to Twitter to clear things up.
Sbahle came into the limelight after she and soccer player, Itumeleng Khune, went public with their relationship following his break up from media personality Minnie Dlamini.
There have since been a number of jokes about Sbahle replacing Minnie in addition to an unconfirmed rivalry between the two.
A Sunday World report that she is being groomed to take over from her in yet another arena of life set Twitter alight on Sunday.
Dlamini surprised everyone when she announced her resignation from the show late last year after four years on Soccerzone. Her spot is currently being filled by Vaylen Kirtley, who has not yet been announced as Dlamini's permanent replacement.
I just remembered Khune used to date Minnie and she was on SoccerZone, he dated Sbahle she is now on SoccerZone. He opens doors or?— Wiz 🚮 (@Wizba) January 15, 2017

But the "Instagram gym instructor" (as Tweeps call her) was having none of it. She shut those rumors right down starting with this vague tweet.

She then got straight to the point.

Come to think about it, she never outright said, "no, it's not happening." So we might still see her on our screens.
What do you guys think? Would she be a good fit for the show or should she just stay in her lane?
