Another Shock Resignation At PSL After Becker Exit?

The Siya crew learnt on Tuesday morning that the Premier Soccer League has been dealt yet another blow following the resignation of prosecutor Nande Becker.

What’s emerged is that Michael Murphy, the league’s lawyer, has apparently also quit his post, though he did not respond to calls and emails sent to him by Soccer Laduma at the time of publishing. 

Becker confirmed he was leaving at the weekend, but did not give reasons when pressed to explain the sudden decision having been working independently for the PSL for about eight years now.

Murphy has been the league’s legal counsel since January 2016 and may have been consulting for the PSL even long before that.

His apparent resignation will come as a huge shock, especially with all the backlog cases facing the institution over the last year or so.

Murphy’s last and very rare public appearance was on the eve of the new 2021/22 season, when he was explaining the sale of Bloemfontein Celtic to Royal AM, who had been embroiled in a legal battle since May over their promotion from the lower leagues.

The legal guru apparently has a “big case” today, hence he hasn’t been available to take calls or reply to emails sent to him by the Siya crew since early this morning.

But indications are that he has quit!

Attempts to get comment from PSL acting CEO Mato Madlala also proved futile.

PSL coaches have also been moving around this season...
