Ajax Cape Town interim coach Calvin Marlin feels it wouldn't make any sense to cancel the 2019/20 Premier Soccer League season.

All sporting activities have been suspended for over a month in South Africa with no clear indication as to when the PSL may resume.

A number of leagues across the world are in discussions to determine the outcomes of their leagues, with France and the Netherlands already calling an end to their respective campaigns.

While Paris-Saint Germain were crowned Ligue 1 champions, no league winners were announced in the Eredivisie.

Marlin, who's Ajax team are currently on top of the GladAfrica Championship, told Far Post: "It wouldn't be logical to throw a whole season away.

"My hope is that they possibly push the Absa Premiership up to 18 teams for next season and come up with a solution for the least amount of games or no games to be played.

"The truth of the matter is that there's no right or wrong way to conclude the current season and each association needs to come to the conclusion which works best for their league and most importantly keeps the players and club staff safe."
