Absa Premiership side Baroka FC say they have enough money to continue paying their players' full salaries, for now.

A number of Premier Soccer League clubs are looking at ways of minimising costs during this period of inactivity as a result of the coronavirus.

Pay cuts are one way to aid struggling clubs but Bakgaga will continue to pay wages as they remain hopeful of getting back to action soon.

Baroka chairperson Khurishi Mphahlele told KickOff: "We are not going to cut salaries for now, we've managed our salaries very well.

"We will wait for May but for now our players mustn't worry about salaries, they will get them fully."

He added: "We just hope government will allow us to train in May, then things will be better for us," Mphahlele adds. "That will determine whether we should look at our finances or not."
