CORONAVIRUS HURTS FOOTBALL
Covid-19 is undermining our Heroes’ Day. Over 69 people in Sharpeville, Langa and elsewhere in this country perished in the hands of the racist regime of the Nationalist Party. We should be watching some of our heroes such as Cardoso, Mathoho, Nukorvic, Manyama, Castro, to name but a few, who have set the league on fire making some people green with envy. The suspension of football may be temporal but the rate of infections is alarming. Anything is possible. A number of suggestions have been made including the teams playing without spectators – a suggestion turned down by both SAFA and PSL. The hope is that the situation is arrested and the teams continue with the program. Failing which the 2019-2020 league will be declared null and void with consequences for the continental competitions.
