Khulu Sibiya, chairman of SuperSport United, told Ramatsiyi Moholoa:
"I strongly believe that we should, it's not too late, have looked internally for a black South African to take over the PSL chief executive post.
I don't think we looked hard enough for a local person for the job. I strongly believe we have enough capable people.
Yes, Trevor (Phillips) did a fantastic job. We as administrators, in particular the PSL executive committee, blundered.
We were careless on this one. We should have monitored the developments after Trevor was tasked to groom somebody who would take over from him.
You will recall that Sizwe Ndzimande was recruited for that post, but the problem is that we did not have a plan B when he left.
We should have recruited somebody immediately after Sizwe resigned, continuously monitor his progress before the departure of Trevor.
I, for one, do not agree with Butana Komphela (chairman of the sports portfolio committee) that Irvin Khoza and Molefi Oliphant must resign. I think it's over the top."
