Cape Town - There is a marked reduction in the number of foreigners playing in the PSL this season compared to how many played when last season ended.
Kickoff.com report that there is a decrease in the amount of foreigners plying their trade in the top-flight of South African soccer.
At the end of the 2013/14 season, just over 100 foreign players were registered to play in the domestic league but according to the latest numbers, there are only 88 foreign-born players registered with the league.
Almost 30% of the players currently registered with the PSL qualify as "locals" because they have South African identity documents. These players do not qualify to play for Bafana Bafana however as they still have foreign passports.
The statistics now show that Sundowns have the highest number of foreign players with 11 foreign players currently registered. The PSL champions also have the biggest squad list with 36 players registered with the league.
Orlando Pirates and Polokwane City both have just two foreign players in their squads.
There may yet be more foreigners joining the South African league as only five PSL clubs have reached the limit on the maximum number of foreigners in their squads.
