“Safa should declare Downs Ladies champions if SNWL is cancelled”


Mamelodi Sundowns captain Agnes Nkosi believes that her side should be declared the champions of the inaugural Safa National Women’s League (SNWL) this season if the league gets cancelled.

Safa suspended all football activities including the SNWL until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, Nkosi says Sundowns must be crowned champions as they have mathematically won the league.

Sundowns Ladies won the league with two games to spare – clinching the title with 60 points from 29 games in their 4-1 thrashing of Coal City Wizards 4-1 Witbank Rugby Stadium in February. Second-placed Tshwane University Technology (TUT Ladies) with 54 points in 21 games cannot mathematically overtake Sundowns.

“I did actually think about that, they (Safa) might say no more soccer this year and if they are saying that, we have won the league, the one remaining game, we draw, we lose it, it makes no difference,” Nkosi told iDiskiTv.

“We have played 21 games, we won all the games, we don’t have a draw, haven’t lost a game, we have 63 points and I have scored two goals as a defender,” she said.

“We as Sundowns Ladies want to make history, a record, become the invincibles, they must allow us to play this game (against TUT Ladies) but if the current situation of the coronavirus doesn’t get better, we can relax, we will see what happens but if nothing happens, they must just give us the title,” added Nkosi.

In an interview with FARPost, Safa’s head of competitions Thomas Sadiki was reluctant to disclose the prize money or confirm if there is any prize money for the league winners.
