Junior Khanye – a former South African youth international – has shared his thoughts on how he believes Mamelodi Sundowns could benefit from the current break in the Absa Premiership.
While he commended the League for their decision to put the season on hold ,in line with the country’s attempts to curb the spread of Coronavirus, the midfielder says that the break could benefit some teams more than others.
“In terms of clubs and their positions on the log, the break could affect some of the teams as the league was starting to get very interesting.
“For example, the break will give Sundowns enough time to rest and recover (from fatigue), because their campaign in CAF (Champions League) had been taxing on them. Once Sundowns recover, they will be more dangerous,” said Khanye.
As is stands on the log standings, Sundowns are in second place with 44 points and with a game in hand, log leaders behind Kaizer Chiefs, who are on 48 points.
Last week, PSL chairman Irvin Khoza said he was hopeful that the league would be completed by June 30, depending on the situation with the COVID-19.
