Dr Khoza And Kaizer Motaung Address SAFA Statement

The Premier Soccer League chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza and Kaizer Motaung have addressed a matter regarding a statement received from the South African Football Association.

"For all the years I've been in football, I've never read a statement from SAFA written in that manner. We have been quiet in the media because our main aim is to find a solution which is in the best interest of football. We are going to seek advice from our legal team and sponsors for a way forward...

"The statement from SAFA was sent out while we were still in a meeting with them in order to resolve the matter. That was unfortunate. We have sent letters and (texts) but there have been no responses,” Khoza said in today’s press conference.

"We are very disheartened because this reminds us of where we come from. The correspondence we see from SAFA amounts to insults. We can't understand why this simple thing which could have been dealt with indoors was thrown out to the public.

"One just wonders what has triggered this. If we don't deal with this matter, it is quite clear that the football industry will be injured. We as the PSL have done everything according to the book… Some of the things mentioned in the statements from SAFA have nothing to do with this matter at hand,” Motaung added.
