Comitis: I Don't See Chiefs Getting Special Treatment

Cape Town City chairman John Comitis has commented on Kaizer Chiefs' request to have their DStv Premiership matches postponed, saying he does not see the Soweto giants getting special treatment. 

Amakhosi released a statement revealing that they have been hit by a Covid-19 outbreak at The Village, which has seen 31 members of the team being affected. As a result, the Soweto giants have asked for their upcoming four matches to be postponed, starting with this weekend's Premiership clash against Cape Town City.

The PSL Executive Committee are set to meet on Friday morning to discuss the matter, but Comitis said he does not see Amakhosi getting their way.

"On behalf of my club, we've been playing with Covid cases and without Covid cases. We've been playing. This is not something new for us and there's been presedence set with regards to other clubs who could not manage a team and they lost points. I don't see Kaizer Chiefs getting special treatment. It's going to have to be a discussion regarding the Omicron virus and if there's anything that we need to do as a collective, not just as Kaizer Chiefs. The games must go on," Comitis told the Siya crew. 

"We need to wait for the executive meeting this morning, which I am on. We will wait to see what the exco comes up with and we will take it from there" 

City are meant to leave for Johannesburg this morning, for their meeting with Amakhosi at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

"We are leaving in an hour's time."
