Others would feel robbed – Phiri Jr.


Baroka vice-captain Gerald Phiri Jr. has joined in on the debate on whether the 2019/20 PSL season should be cancelled all together or rather wait until the COVID-19 pandemic fades away.

It has been over a month now since the last Absa Premiership match took place after the League Board of Governors were forced to temporarily suspend the whole programme.

With his team embattled in the relegation fight, the Malawian international says he would prefer anything that the powers-that-be decide.

“I think it’s a 50/50 thing because others would feel robbed and others would benefit so I am still undecided on which side I would take to be honest so anything that the League decides I would go with it,” he told FARPost.

The 26-year-old who joined the Limpopo side at the start of the current season has also praised Coach Dylan Kerr for the impact he has had on his game.

“I think he has helped me in finding myself and most of all giving me that freedom to get on the ball a lot but to be fair I think he has had an impact on everyone’s game at the team. I don’t really like comparing teams because I think every team has its on shortfalls and for me it’s about enjoying myself wherever I am,” he said.

With the likes of Richard Mbulu, Denis Chembezi and Khuba Muyaba now playing their football in South Africa, the former Ajax Cape Town and Bidvest Wits star believes it’s a good boost for the Flames national team.

“It’s good for the flames actually because we have a lot of foreign based players apart from SA so it’s very good for us because international games are different from local games,” concluded Phiri.

Phiri has played 26 matches in all competitions for Baroka since his arrival scoring 2 goals with 4 assists.
