Football loving Malawians are excited with the announcement made by the South African government which has given a go ahead for sports to resume in the coming months giving hope to the return of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) anytime soon.
The South Africa Minister of sports and culture Nathi Mthethwa on Saturday 30th May announced that sports like football, rugby and cricket can return under level 3 of the lockdown in the country but South Africa Football Association (SAFA) and PSL are yet to make a statement on the actual return date of the game.
The announcement is good news to Malawians who play in the PSL such as Orlando Pirates football club striker Gabadinho Mhango who until the suspension of the league was the leading top goal scorer with 14 goals.
Malawi national football team defender Peter Cholopi and striker Khuda Muyaba are also expected to resume training with their side Polokwane City while midfielder Gerald Phiri jnr and Richard Mbulu are ready to help Baroka escape relegation.
Defender Limbikani Mzamva and midfilder Robert Ng’ambi are expected to feature for Highlands Park and Black Leopards respectively once the PSL resumes.
