'It Doesn’t Make Sense To Resume Football Any Time Soon'

The Premier Soccer League Executive Committee are meeting today to discuss a way forward for the 2019/20 domestic campaign.

The league now has its first confirmed case of COVID-19 after Orlando Pirates revealed that Ben Motshwari has tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the PSL will later today come to a conclusion about a proposal that needs to be submitted to the South African government regarding when it will be safe for domestic football to resume.

Mzansi is currently in level four of the nationwide lockdown and sporting events remain prohibited due to the strict health and safety regulations set in place.

However, the amount of positive COVID-19 cases continue to increase daily and it looks unlikely that we will have another easing of restrictions any time soon.

Speaking to the Siya crew this week, former Orlando Pirates playmaker, Dikgang Mabalane thinks that it would not make sense for football to resume any time soon.

“For me, yes it doesn’t make sense to go back any time soon because of the safety reasons, the players’ safety and people outside of football, like the staff members and whoever is involved in football,” he said.

“Are we saying that when the season resumes, 50 people must go to the stadium? That is not possible, you need your medical team and you need your security, you need all the management and all of those things. I don’t think it is practical. They have to consider things like that so I don’t see it starting any time soon and I think as soon as we are sure that everyone’s safety is taken care off then we can resume football, but that happening in a month or two? Hardly,” Mabalane added.
