Maritzburg United goalkeeper Richard Ofori is eager to return to the pitch and believes scrapping the current PSL season will only lead to confusion.

The Team of Choice are in fifth position in the standings and still have a chance of moving into the top three if the season resumes, and Ofori is hoping that will be the case.

The 26-year-old Ghanaian admits it won't be an easy decision for the PSL and SA football's governing body to make, but he is keen to finish the season properly.

"It is a very difficult situation," Ofori was quoted as saying by Phakaaathi.

"I think we just have to go back and play because they can't say they are ending the league, as that will lead to a lot of confusion.

"Teams have already lost a lot of money. And those who will be relegated will feel bad. And those who are in the first division who feel they can still get to promotion will feel bad.

"It's a difficult decision for the [PSL] board to decide, but at the end of the day whatever decision they take we can't say no. They know best and the importance of everything."

He added: "I can't speak for everyone but for me, I am not scared. The decision will be made having considered everything [risks]. I have already psyched myself for whatever happens. If they cancel, or decide to continue, I will be fine."
