What is happening in PSL?

This Covid-19 outbreak has caused disruption in the PSL which affects the league.

Further resignation in the Premier Soccer League's legal department has been announced, only days after Nande Becker stepped down as prosecutor.

Michael Murphy has also departed the PSL with immediate effect, according to KickOff.

Murphy has resigned, according to Soccerladuma and Sowetan Live, with the latter adding that the PSL's finance manager and accountant, Yusuf Seth, has also quit.

The improvements, particularly in the legal department, come at a difficult moment for the league, which is claimed to be dealing with a backlog of cases.

The resignations have also come at a time when they are trying to figure out why Kaizer Chiefs did not show up for their game versus Cape Town City last weekend.

The Soweto giants have requested that their forthcoming encounters be postponed, claiming that they are currently unable to play because to a Covid-19 epidemic in their camp.

At least 31 people are thought to have contracted the virus at Naturena, and Chiefs say they won't be able to field a team to play their games.

This puts the league in a pickle, as another Chiefs no-show is expected on Wednesday when they visit to Golden Arrows.

With the PSL's legal staff already overburdened, it's unclear how they'll manage Amakhosi's issue in order to prevent yet another fixture walkover.

If their forthcoming matches are not played on the scheduled dates, Chiefs are likely to continue to demand that they be postponed.

Their opponents, on the other hand, could each request a walkover if they appear at the stadium for their separate matches, like Cape Town City did at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

As a result, all teams will be looking forward to hearing what the PSL will do in the future.
