EXCLUSIVE | CT City boss Comitis: A man with a plan for a new stadium

With the ability to complete the 2019/20 Premier Soccer League season still very much in doubt, clubs are being forced to rein in their spending ambitions.

Concerns over how to pay staff wages have become the priority, but Comitis is hopeful they won't need to sell players to generate an income.

He told the SowetanLIVE: "At this stage, what we are trying to do is to keep all our best players, I think everyone is trying to do that.

"The sooner we go back, the less damage will be done. It's fine to sell your players, but you have to remain competitive.

Comitis added though that they will need to make "adjustments" to their squad.

"Every club will look at how to keep their best 16 players and look after them. We won't be able to have a luxury of having 23 players with experience. Adjustments need to be done."
