SuperSport United midfielder Grant Kekana says he hasn't heard any mention of pay cuts and reckons there's no cause for concern among the squad.

The coronavirus pandemic, and the consequent nationwide lockdown, has brought South African football to an abrupt halt, causing some clubs to struggle without their usual income from tickets and sponsors.

AmaZulu and Cape Town City have already indicated that they will need to reduce the wages of players and staff, but Kekana remains optimistic.

"So far, I'm not worried, as we have not heard anything like that. Nothing has been said to us and we’ve nothing to worry about. This is a professional team, and if there were such problems, they would tell us," said Kekana according toDaily Sun.

Asked about how his training is going at home, Kekana added that he at least has his cousin to keep him company during workouts.

He added: "I train with my cousin. It's better for one not to train alone. When it's the two of you, you’re energetic and want to work out for a little bit longer daily."
