Black Stars and Maritzburg United goalkeeper Richard Ofori does not want the South African Professional Football League season to be scrapped due to COVID-19.

Maritzburg United are in fifth position on the league table with 39 points, just a point behind Orlando Pirates [40] and SuperSport United [40]. The Pietermaritzburg side holds a strong view that they can end the season in the top 3.

Ofori [26], admits that to annul the league will be a very tough decision for the PSL and SAFA to take:
“It is a very difficult situation,” Ofori told Phakaaathi.

“I think we just have to go back and play because they can’t say they are ending the league, as that will lead to a lot of confusion.

“Teams have already lost a lot of money. And those who will be relegated will feel bad. And those who are in the first division who feel they can still get to promotion will feel bad.

“It’s a difficult decision for the [PSL] board to decide, but at the end of the day whatever decision they take we can’t say no. They know best and the importance of everything.”

The former Wa All Stars shot stopper further reiterated his readiness to getting back onto the pitch.
“I can’t speak for everyone, but for me, I am not scared. The decision will be made having considered everything [risks].

“I have already psyched myself up for whatever happens. If they cancel, or decide to continue, I will be fine.”
