- Maritzburg United midfielder Keagan Buchanan feels that Kaizer Chiefs deserve to be named as Absa Premiership champions
- The former Kaizer Chiefs player feels his former side has been the best team this season
- Buchanan cited the precedent set in the Belgian and French football leagues
Football fans are chomping at the bit and can't wait for the action to resume after the threat of Covid-19 has been curbed.
However, there's no guarantee that the league will resume and the possibility still remains that the season may be scrapped.
Maritzburg United midfielder Keagan Buchanan feels that if league action does not resume then Kaizer Chiefs will be crowned as worthy winners.
SowetanLIVE reported that Buchanan's view is that the current league standings represent a fair reflection of performances.
His current side currently sit in fifth position on the log.
Buchanan said, "If you're looking at form and what we have done this season, I would say that Chiefs should win the league."
The former Amakhosi player added, "If you look at France and Belgium, they have given the league to teams on top of the table."
Club Bruges and Paris Saint-Germain have been crowned as champions of the Belgian and French leagues respectively.
However, rivals such as Mamelodi Sundowns would point to the fact that those teams boasted runaway leads in those divisions.
Buchanan's sentiments were echoed by former AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson, as per a Briefly.co.za report.
According to Johnson, it isn't safe for the league to resume and handing the title to Chiefs would be in line with FIFA policy.
