Absa Premiership Suspension: Latest At Pirates

Word reaching the Siya crew following the most recent decision by Premier Soccer League chairman Irvin Khoza to suspend domestic football, is that Orlando Pirates players remain active and are prepared for any eventuality.

Like most clubs, the Buccaneers are adhering to safety measures and following protocol as communicated by the South African government in light of the Coronavirus outbreak, though the latest update is that coach Josef Zinnbauer was still taking them through their paces as they target a CAF Champions League place.

Pirates still have a mathematical chance of winning the Absa Premiership title, but they would have to win their remaining seven matches and hope log leaders Kaizer Chiefs, who have eight more points than they do, falter along the way.

Zinnbauer’s men had been preparing to face reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns last week Tuesday, but that league fixture was called off when Khoza announced the day before that all domestic football would be on hold.

It’s a time of uncertainty as a PSL task team has been appointed to look at ways the league can resume while working closely with government, and some clubs have continued to be hard at training, with others – like Kaizer Chiefs and Sundowns – have given their players time off and told them to self-isolate, but will have to make a call on their return.
