Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has revealed the Premier Soccer League faces some challenging times due to the tough state of the world economy.

The 72-year-old was recently re-elected to serve on the National Soccer League's Executive Committee, of which Orlando Pirates boss Irvin Khoza will once again be the chairman.

Motaung, Khoza as well as Jomo Cosmos owner Jomo Sono have all been credited for the commercialisation and development of football in South Africa.

Nonetheless, Chincha Guluva believes that some tough times could be ahead for the professional game in Mzansi.

He told Chiefs' official website, "Football forms a big part of the socio-economics in our country. The global economy is stretched at the moment, which means that we will need all stakeholders to hold hands in order to navigate us through this challenging period."

The new Executive Committee will serve for a four-year term until 2020 at which point another election will take place.

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

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