faces some challenging times due to the tough state of the world
The 72-year-old was recently re-elected to serve on the National
Soccer League's Executive Committee, of which Orlando Pirates boss Irvin
Khoza will once again be the chairman.
Motaung, Khoza as well as Jomo Cosmos owner Jomo Sono have all been
credited for the commercialisation and development of football in South
Nonetheless, Chincha Guluva believes that some tough times could be ahead for the professional game in Mzansi.
He told Chiefs' official website, "Football forms a big part of the
socio-economics in our country. The global economy is stretched at the
moment, which means that we will need all stakeholders to hold hands in
order to navigate us through this challenging period."
The new Executive Committee will serve for a four-year term until 2020 at which point another election will take place.
Khoza declared his delight at being re-elected unopposed as the Premier Soccer League chairperson on Tuesday.
The 68-year-old has held the role since 2002 during which time the PSL has shown continual improvement in many areas.
