Johannesburg - Stanley Matthews has resigned from his post as the CEO of the PSL, only five months into his three-year tenure.

His resignation was confirmed by the PSL’s chairperson, Irvin Khoza, during a media briefing at the PSL headquarters in Parktown, Johannesburg, this afternoon.

Khoza revealed that COO Cambridge Nkonyane will be the acting CEO, on an interim basis, while a permanent successor is being identified.

Khoza said that Matthews had his reasons for leaving the organisation and the PSL’s EXCO respect his decision.

"As reported in the media that Stan Matthews will quit the PSL, I am hereby to announce that he Matthews approached me in April that he would want to go and work with Multi Choice and he wanted to leave the CEO for a better job and greener pastures. 

“For the mean time we will have the COO, Cambridge Nkonyane, as the acting CEO. Matthews told me that he is happy to have worked with the biggest league in the African continent. We wish him all the best in his new endeavor at Multi Choice," Khoza concluded.

    PSL is the worst league in the whole universe, who wants to be a CEO of such league anyway...

      well said! the product is poor : terrible pitches most of the time and those pathetic smaller stadiums (looks worse on tv), extremely sparse crowds (except for the soweto derby), bad crowd behaviour, no huge name players (except benni lol) and lack of representation like other sporting codes!

      Plus for every PSL match, one has to buy 3 tickets: 1 Ticket for your Own Seat to sit on! 1 Ticket for the Seat to place your Generator in case of Load Shedding! 1 Ticket for the Seat next to yours to Rip Out and throw on the pitch when your Team Loses! I Rest My Case! By The Way... Do NOT buy an e-Tag! EVER!

    Something's not right with this PSL position, first it was MAJAVU who also resigned in record time, now another similar resignation, Me thinks the position shuld be scrapped.

    Whatever. I just don't like the grammar of the statement, issued especially as it is coming from 'the biggest league' on the continent!

    The same thing happened after Trevor Philips. We need a guy from overseas to be PSL CEO
