Less public spats a boon - Khoza

Premier Soccer League chairman Irvin Khoza has commended member clubs for gradually making customary public spats a thing of the past.

Khoza was speaking after he was re-elected unopposed for a third two-year term at the league's biennial general meeting in Sandton on Saturday.

"I would like to convey my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the clubs for the sustained improvement in behaviour and image portrayed.

"The lessening of public spats has reduced the armour of football detractors to use us to attack our own interests and in so doing, diminish our value in the market."

Khoza, who is also the chairman of the 2010 Local Organising Committee, has also praised the clubs for contributing to the success of the PSL.

"As we up our game in the corporate stakes, we cannot be found wanting in some of the bare essentials of corporate governance.

"The handling of tax matters, including the relation with Sars, form a rather important corporate governance test that is not negotiable.

"They have set up a special unit to deal with clubs and football related matters. The cooperation of the clubs is invaluable for the sustenance of this relationship."

Khoza also paid special tribute to Dan Leboa, their former general manager who retired in September after serving the sport for 35 years.

Regarding the successor to Trevor Phillips, Khoza said the new executive committee will decide on the method to be used to search for the right person for the job.

Khoza said it was advisable for the search for the successor to start soon, so that that person can learn from Phillips before he retires at the end of the season.

The league posted a R7,6 million profit.

"It was a great year for us," said Phillips.

Other elected executive committee members are Kaizer Motaung, Anastasia Tsichlas, Mato Madlala, David Thidiela, John Comitis, Goolam Allie and Stan Matthews.

At the meeting, Mamelodi Sundowns proposed that clubs taking part in CAF competitions be allowed to register players before the January window period.

Regarding the sale of clubs, it was decided that the club will remain unchanged for one season, including its location, name and colours.
