The PSL suffered a great loss after losing two high-profile personnel in Nande Becker and Michael Murphy from its legal department could make it difficult for the PSL to challenge Kaizer Chiefs' decision for deciding not to show up their match against Cape Town City at FNB stadium over the weekend.
PSL legal head Murphy handed in his resignation on Tuesday. His sudden resignation coming days after it was confirmed prosecutor Becker left last month. Another senior official who served in the finance department, Yusuf Seth, is also said to have resigned on Tuesday.
Murphy did not respond to several requests for comment but speculation was rife on Tuesday that he left as a direct result of the Chiefs saga, which first came to the fore when Kaizer Chiefs stated last week they would be unable to field a team for their match against Cape Town City.
As head of legal, Murphy would have been instrumental in establishing the league's Covid-19 protocol, which also has a clause barring teams from using a rising number of cases as reason to request postponements.
Kaizer Chiefs are scheduled to face Golden Arrows in Durban on Wednesday. However, Chiefs made it clear on Tuesday they were once again unable to honour the match as Covid-19 cases at their headquarters have on surged from 31 to 36.
