Midfielder Kearyn Baccus says he wants the Absa Premiership to resume so he can win the league with Kaizer Chiefs.

Amakhosi entered the enforced break as a result of the coronavirus on top of the league standings.

They lead reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns by just four points and having played a game more.

But midfielder Baccus, who joined the club from Australian A-League side Melbourne City in 2019 has confidence in the quality of his side.

He welcomes the idea of playing behind closed doors in order to complete the season.

Baccus told Sowetan Live: "I would like to finish and play the remaining games behind closed doors if possible, if not then it's up to the PSL board to make the big decisions on what [is] the right thing to do for the league.

"I think we can definitely finish the league strong and finish close to the top spot. I would like to win the league with Chiefs."

Baccus has one goal and four assists for Chiefs this season.

"I am okay with what I have done so far in the PSL, but I think I still have a lot more to give," he added. "You know when players come from other countries it takes time for them to adapt to a different league.

"Out of 10, I'd give myself a 5/10 for the season so far."
