Cape Town - Premier Soccer League chairman Dr Irvin Khoza insists he will not step down until teams in South Africa's top flight own their own stadiums.

The 68-year-old, widely know as the Iron Duke in South African football circles, still sees plenty of room for improvement and growth.

And despite his advancing years, Khoza appears to be as determined as ever.

"The PSL is not yet on the level that I want it to be," Khoza told the Isolezwe Newspaper.

"It has grown from strength to strength, but there's still a long way to go.

"Now, I wouldn't want to lead CAF or FIFA while there's still so much work to be done in the PSL."

He added: "I want PSL teams to have their own stadiums in the next few years. So, I won't leave the PSL until that happens."
