Amakhosi and the PSL are at loggerheads regarding the two missed fixtures against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows in December 2021.

Chiefs couldn’t honour the two matches due to Covid-19 that hit their camp – this after requesting for the postponement of the two fixtures.

At the time, the Soweto giants reported over 50 positive cases within the Naturena camp – and that made it almost impossible for them to honour those fixtures.

However, the league took its time to respond to the Chiefs request – they only responded towards the end of December , revealing they rejected the said request.

Upon finally receiving the league’s response, Chiefs made it clear that they would appeal the decision with the South African Football Association (SAFA) arbitration.

The matter sat on 9 February but the arbitration was postponed to 15-16 March after the two parties had come to an agreement.

Now, according to Motaung, Chiefs did nothing wrong as they followed the laws of the country and did what was best for everyone.

Motaung said Covid-19 put Chiefs under immense pressure and, therefore, the club couldn’t risk the health of their employees.
