The PSL CEO wished Bafana Bafana luck ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations opening game against the tricky and highly rated Algerians.
De Villiers, however, believes that Bafana, though regarded as underdogs in what has been described as the ‘Group of Death’ with Algeria, Ghana and Senegal, they can rise to the occasion.
“We have a challenging Group in the tournament but we have a team that shows hunger and dedication.
“I appeal to all football fans to rally behind the national team and support the players. On behalf of the PSL and its members, I would like to wish the team good luck.
“We will be fully behind them as they carry our flag in Equatorial Guinea.”
De Villiers added: “The success of Bafana Bafana is important to the PSL – it puts our country and our league in the spotlight. We know that the majority of the players selected by the coach ply their trade in the Premier Soccer League. Bafana Bafana’s success is also our success.”
