Khoza preparing for 'battle'

Johannesburg - The PSL top brass led by chairman Irvin Khoza is set to meet President Jacob Zuma in an attempt to garner support when they tackle SAFA.

Soccer-Laduma has been closely following the saga of Khoza’s battle with SAFA president Kirsten Nematandani.

The two have been at loggerheads since Nematandani’s appointment as president late last year and Khoza does not seem to be giving up the fight to overthrow him.

The Siya crew can confirm that the mobilisation of support started within the league when Khoza and Kaizer Motaung were on Thursday seen meeting with Mamelodi Sundowns boss Patrice Motsepe in a well known hotel.

Motsepe publicly defied his PSL colleagues last year when he decided to support the newly elected SAFA regime alongside Jomo Cosmos owner Jomo Sono.

As both Khoza and Motaung are used to wielding more power within South African football, they are certainly not enjoying having to submit to SAFA’s instructions, being the country’s football authority.

“They are now going all out to win the hearts of people who they will need when they declare war on SAFA and try to save their domination of the game, hence the meeting with Motsepe and then they will seek presidential intervention,” revealed a high ranking Soccer-Laduma informant.

Amongst other things, the PSL will want to fight SAFA through their reluctance to release players for national duty.
