Cape Town – The South African Football Association have released a statement apologising for
the late arrival of the Bafana Bafana squad.
Sport24 reported that the Premier Soccer League have postponed four of this
weekend’s scheduled PSL fixtures.
The fixtures postponed are: Chippa United vs SuperSport
United, Bidvest Wits vs Jomo Cosmos, Kaizer Chiefs vs MP Black Aces and Platinum Stars
vs Ajax Cape Town.
SAFA have now released a statement apologising to the clubs
and fans alike for the delay of national team’s arrival.
“Due to unavailability of flights from Central America
direct to South Africa, the Bafana Bafana squad will only land in South Africa
on Saturday morning from Sao Paulo, Brazil,” read the statement on SAFA website.
“We would like to apologise to the PSL, clubs and fans for
the inconvenience which resulted in the postponement of four matches scheduled
for this weekend.
“We would also like to thank all the stakeholders for their
cooperation regarding this matter.”
Bafana Bafana leave Central America unbeaten having won
Costa Rica 1-0 courtesy of an Andile Jalie goal and drawing to Honduras in
their final match on tour.
