Cape Town - Irvin Khoza has declared his delight at being re-elected unopposed as the Premier Soccer League chairperson on Tuesday.

The Iron Duke retained his position after being voted in at the league's annual general meeting in Monte Casino.

The 68-year-old has held the role since 2002 during which time the PSL has shown continual improvement in many areas.

Khoza will lead an executive committee that includes Kaizer Chiefs' Kaizer Motaung, Black Leopards' David Thidiela, Bidvest Wits' Jose Ferreira, Bloemfontein Celtic's Khumbulani Konco, Golden Arrows' Mato Madlala, Mamelodi Sundowns' Dr Rejoice Simelane and SuperSport United's Stanley Matthews.

The Orlando Pirates boss expressed his excitement at once more taking on the role of chairperson of the South African top flight.

He told reporters, "For me, personally, I am very honored to have been given a new mandate by the members. I'm very excited with my new team and I feel like a kid in a candy shop."

Former executive committee members who are not returning include John Comitis, Dan Simelane and Mike Mokoena.
