Irvin Khoza told : "On the question of the [PSL] prosecutor we have taken a decision on that. There will be a new prosecutor coming and not one prosecutor for that matter.

Irvin Khoza said : “The ideal situation is supposed to be two down and two up. But when we configured the PSL in 1996, there was a lot of give and take, a lot of sacrifices to make sure that the league is viable and the funding model is viable. Because not all the clubs at that point in time were marketable, to get sponsors. We had to find a way of how best to create an exciting, competitive league,” “Fast forward to [today], the league spends R114-million in subsidising the first division… If you want that ideal situation, it means everybody must fend for themselves. You can’t go and subsidise and at the same time be disadvantaged. So that is a bit of a tricky situation” External link
