- Kaizer Chiefs will not be crowned champions early
- PSL executive member Stan Matthews confirmed that the league will run its course and not be stopped prematurely
- The Belgian league was brought to a close due to the coronavirus crisis and Percy Tau's club was crowned as champions
Com what may, Kaizer Chiefs will not be handed the Absa Premiership title this season.
The Glamour Boys boast a four point lead in the PSL, but will have to earn the title the hard way.
This was confirmed by PSL executive member Stan Matthews, as the local season will be allowed to run its course.
Earlier, Breifly.co.za reported that Club Brugge were crowned as champions of the Belgian league after their board decided to scrap their season due to the coronavirus concerns.
The decision resulted in Percy Tau earning his first major European club title.
Speculation then grew that other leagues would follow suit, but The Daily Sun reported that the campaign will not end prematurely.
Matthews said, “We would rather not have a new season altogether than leaving this one. Whatever happens, the current season will be completed even if it means that we will play until December.”
Matthews, who is also the SuperSport United CEO, said that the domestic season will be completed, even if teams need to play behind closed doors.
