‘It Will Be Awkward Without Fans’

As the Absa Premiership return approaches, after a four month hiatus, a former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper has revealed what it would be like to return to action at empty stadiums.

The news that the PSL is close to a restart has been welcomed by the masses, this more than likely looks set to take place in Johannesburg, if PSL chairman Irvin Khoza’s media address on Monday is anything to go by.

Like most leagues in the world, the PSL will be played behind closed doors as a safety precaution, something that Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo feels the players will have to adjust to.

The goalkeeper who joined the Clever Boys from Chippa United, shared his thoughts on what it would be like without supporters in the stands.

“Given the fact that our country is a soccer-loving nation, this will be very awkward because it’s a very rare occurrence. Fans always have an influence on our games and our livelihoods as footballers, but again we must embrace this moment and give them something to cherish and rave about while watching from home,” Mhlongo said speaking to Wits’ official website.

Mhlongo was part of the Bidvest Wits players who recently returned to training under the watchful eye of Gavin Hunt at the club’s Sturrock Park premises.
