Comitis on PSL return: A long time coming


Cape Town City boss John Comitis is of the opinion that the resumption of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) season is long overdue but pleased that “sanity” finally prevailed.

Comitis was one of the club owners, who gave the South African Football Association (SAFA) a dressing down, implying that the association didn’t want the Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship to resume as they were constantly “moving the goalposts”.

“We are all very excited to hear that we will be returning back to the playing fields,” said Comitis.

“And under the circumstances with the many uncertainties in the whole world at the moment, to know that you have a date to resume football, especially to resume the current season to its completion,” – Comitis. Picture: Cape Town City/Facebook. 

PSL Chairman Irvin Khoza announced on Monday afternoon that the Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship will resume on August 11 with the Nedbank Cup semi-finals set to get the restart underway on August 8.

‘The Citizens’ are tenth on the log standings, four points above the relegation zone and four points adrift from the top eight with seven matches remaining and Comitis says his boys are ready to get the ball rolling.

“It’s obviously on a sporting basis the fairest way to complete the decision on promotion and relegation.

“I am glad that the PSL Board of Governors (BoG) and the chairman made the decision in unison, so we look forward to the return and our team Cape Town City is very ready, we’ve been prepared for the start so is a long time coming and we are very grateful,” concluded the CT City Boss.
