Chiefs Want Downs Game Postponed
15 January 2013
Current PSL leaders, Kaizer Chiefs, have contacted the PSL in an attempt to have their Absa Premiership clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on February 12 postponed.
Chiefs have seven of their first team players included in Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, and face Sundowns just two days after the tournament comes to an end.
A high-ranking source at Naturena confirmed to the Siya crew that steps have been taken with regards to postponing the game and that the club are hoping that common sense will prevail.
The Amakhosi have more players in the Bafana side than any other team, yet have still been given their first league game so soon after the tournament ends, meaning that if South Africa do have a good tournament then they’re players will hardly get any form of break.
It seems that a letter has been sent to the PSL requesting the game's postponement, however it is thought that if it is agreed to, it will only happen if Bafana reach the semi-finals.
