Cape Town - Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairperson Irvin Khoza expects to have a new CEO in place by the end of next month.

Mato Madlala, who is the owner of Golden Arrows, has been the acting PSL CEO for the past year after Brand de Villiers handed in his resignation. 

Madlala says she is not interested in taking the job on a full-time basis due to the other commitments she has on her plate.

"I don't want the position on a permanent basis. I'm too old now, plus I have my own team to look after. I can't hold this position permanently," she was quoted saying by Isolezwe.

Khoza says the issue will be addressed at an upcoming AGM.

"We will announce our new CEO at our AGM meeting in November. By the end of November, we will have the new CEO who will hold the position on a permanent basis," he said.

“Mato Madlala is overloaded. She has a team that she has to look after, she has a family and she also serves on other structures and boards. She has done a good job since taking over. I would love for her to continue on a permanent basis, but it's all up to her," he added.
