“There will be a fight because I honestly think that the league must finish, even if it finishes in December, the league must finish!”
Those were words uttered by Swallows FC chairman David Mogashoa when asked what would be the club’s reaction if the 2019/20 season was to be cancelled.
Mogashoa was speaking on SABC Radio Station Phalaphala FM Sports Show Zwamitambo on Wednesday night.
The PSL Board of Governors has appointed a task team to look at all possible measures to ensure that the leagues resume in compliance with the directives issued by the Government and will take a decision thereafter.
Swallows are currently second on the GladAfrica Championship log with 41 points after 24 matches.
“Remember there are teams that must be promoted and teams that must be relegated so clubs are spending a lot of money on this thing so we cannot play one season for two years. Because that’s what it will be we will play one season for two years,” he told presenter Phathutshedzo Billie Matidza.
“We are very close to promotion, we want to complete the league. If we lose we must lose because we played and we lost not because the season ended so if the season ends in December it must end in December the new season can start in February,” continued Mogashoa.
As things stand, Swallows are in a good position to secure a spot in the relegation/Promotion playoffs at the end of the season.
They also still have a chance to gain automatic promotion should Ajax Cape Town who have a seven point lead, with the same number of matches slip up.
