PSL games were last played on the 11th of March, as the league was halted in line with international measure to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

This left most clubs with six or seven games of the current campaign to play.

With South Africa currently at lockdown level three, clubs are gearing up to return to training, although league games will only be permitted under at level 1.

There are fears the season could be abandoned, but Motlanthe remains optimistic.

He told the Daily Sun: "People must not jump the gun. We will take guidance from the government.

"The Minister told us to consider lives before economy. Under Level 3, football cannot be played.

"FIFA said the respective governments across the world must make decisions and we are no exceptions.

"Clubs have already fumigated their facilities and put plans in place to be compliant. Hopefully, the process might be sped up and next week we might hear something from the government."
