It's not looking at Kaizer Chiefs

Goal.com took a look at some of the reasons for and against Kaizer Chiefs being granted respite by the PSL.

Chiefs decision to pull out of their match against Cape Town City after a Covid-19 outbreak in the camp has left the PSL with some very tough calls to make, the late timing of the withdrawal may work against Amakhosi.

One also has to question how so many of Kaizer Chiefs contingent, a combined total of 31 staff and players tested positive in such a short space of time. Have proper protocols been in place and strictly adhered to? The club claimed they have:

"As Kaizer Chiefs communicated in the last few days leading up to the game against Swallows FC, the club has instituted stricter Covid-19 management protocols following several positive Covid-19 cases affecting the team and general personnel.

"Our protocols are always strict but we have had to be more stringent in the last two weeks given the increasing number of infections in Gauteng and the country.

"Players and staff at Kaizer Chiefs football club have been closely monitored for symptoms during the Covid-19 pandemic and have been tested regularly. More personnel tested positive this week as we preparing for Saturday's game".

In the absence of any evidence to the contrary, we must believe these statements to be true.

It does beg the question as to why no other PSL club has reported similar such outbreaks. But with that said, not everything is known about Covid-19, and even less so about the latest variant which was recently found in South Africa.

Kaizer Chiefs may well be innocent victims.
