Ajax Cape Town chairman Ari Efstathiou says it would be
unfair to the top teams to nullify the results of this season's league action.
With all sporting activity suspended and no clear indication
as to when football may resume in South Africa, there is growing concern that
this season may simply be abandoned.
Leagues all over the world are having to make their own
decisions regarding the coronavirus pandemic, with Ligue 1 in France already
cancelled, along with Belgium's Jupiler Pro League and the Eredivisie in the
While Kaizer Chiefs are leading the PSL, the Urban Warriors
are on top of the GladAfrica Championship.
Efstathiou was reported on IOL as saying: "It will be
unfair to nullify the league for the guys that are on top. I don't see any
sense in that.
"It will favour the guys that did not try rather than
those that worked hard. If you look at us, Swallows and Uthongathi FC, there's
no doubt that we all deserve to be in the top three.
"If you look at the ones at the bottom, they deserve to

"It is the last thing that must happen. If we had only
played 50% of the games, then maybe (it would sound right). But we’ve played
80% of our games and we are seven points ahead."
He added "Even if you look at Kaizer Chiefs, they have
been leading the league for the past couple of months and maybe longer. Yes,
the chasing pack is catching up. The bottom line is that they are four points
ahead. It is not by luck, but it is because they have been playing well."
