Cavin Johnson says the Premier Soccer League (PSL) must follow FIFA's protocols by awarding the 2019/20 Absa Premiership title to Kaizer Chiefs.

The former Platinum Stars, SuperSport United and AmaZulu coach, who left Lidoda Duvha in January, feels it is currently too dangerous to continue the 2019/20 Premier Soccer League season.

All sporting activities have been suspended for almost two months with no clear indication as to when the PSL may be able to continue.

Speaking to Isolezwe, Johnson said: "If we say we want to follow FIFA protocols then that means we have to do the right thing, give the trophy to Chiefs.

"I know there are some people that will argue that they still have to play games and that Chiefs were still to play so and so but they must be given the trophy, honestly.

"I don't think it's a good idea to finish the season because it is too dangerous to do so. Let's just hope when the PSL committee meets during the week, they will put the lives of the people ahead of everything."

Ligue 1 in France has already been cancelled, with Paris-Saint Germain awarded the title, while no winner was awarded in the Netherlands after the Eredivisie was called to an end.
