De Sa: It is what it is

Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa insists there is no point complaining about the Absa Premiership's staggered fixtures because it is the same for everyone.

The local league is in the middle of a two-week break for international fixtures, less than a month after a similar 10 day break.

And there will be only one league fixture before another stoppage for the Under-23 8 Nations tournament between 28 November and 12 December.

De Sa admitted the constant breaks are far from ideal, but also acknowledged that they have been able to plan for it because the fixture schedule was revealed to clubs in good time.

"There is one positive in that everyone has the same break," he told KickOff. "It's the same for everybody, everybody was aware of it when we got the fixtures at the beginning of the season.

"We all got the same fixture list, so we all knew about it - it was on the cards, and there was nothing we could do about it.

"I think that's one positive thing you can say to the PSL - that it was set up from the beginning and that it is what it is: You can't run away from it because it was always going to be like that.

"So it's not something that has been thrown at us, it was there all the time so all the clubs have had more than enough time to prepare for this," he concluded.
