A NUMBER of PSL coaches have expressed concern about the Fifa international calendar, which meant that there were no league matches at the weekend.

The league campaign will resume on Friday and the general consensus from coaches who won their last matches was that the break would disrupt their clubs' momentum.

SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt, whose side thrashed struggling AmaZulu 4-2 before the break, said he would have preferred to have kept on playing but also admitted that the break could be of some help to them.

"It is a bit difficult because the players would have wanted to carry on playing. They are a bit frustrated that they won't be playing for a while but the break also gives us a chance to recharge our batteries," Hunt said.

Santos coach Boebie Solomons would also have preferred to have carried on playing, but acknowledged the need to make time for the national team.

Moroka Swallows coach Rainer Zobel, AmaZulu's Neil Tovey, Jomo Cosmos's Jomo Sono and Manqoba Mngqithi of Lamontville Golden Arrows welcomed the break but the latter was concerned that his players might lose their rhythm.
