Former Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin "Micho" Sredojevic is eager to see the Absa Premiership back in action as he anticipates a red-hot title fight.

Sredojevic, who was in charge at the Buccaneers between 2017 and 2019, believes football fans can expect a feast for the eyes when the beautiful game returns following the current coronavirus lockdown.

Kaizer Chiefs are sitting at the top of the standings with 48-points but have played a game more than second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns, who are four points behind.

SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates are third and fourth respectively, with 40 points each, and also remain contenders.

"The South African PSL title race was getting very hot. But at the same moment we need to know that this lockdown is a major force above us and beyond us," Sredojevic told FARPost.

"And everyone (players) staying in isolation and quarantine I believe that they are in full action (training), they will be ready once all this has passed and [when] all come back to normality and we go back to competition.

"I am convinced and believe knowing how each team is expertly led from the point of fitness, from the point of football that they are hungry for football (and) they will bounce back stronger. And if PSL is supposed to continue we shall see one of the hottest title races ever.

"I personally believe that when this ends (lockdown) we shall witness very good football and coming back strong and hungry for the game."
