Pitso Mosimane says it is impossible to predict how Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs will perform when the 2019/20 season restarts.

EXCLUSIVE | Government instructs SAFA to play 'overarching' role in PSL return

Play has been suspended for three months and talks are still underway as to exactly where and when the league will be able to resume.

Mamelodi Sundowns headed into the enforced break, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, in second on the league standings, just four points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs and with a game in hand.

Downs are the reigning champions and have nine games to retain to their title.

But speaking to the TimesLIVE, the decorated head coach said while normally he would back the Brazilians to storm to the top, this season it isn't as clear what will happen.

He said: "You see‚ when it is a normal environment‚ I always say we (Sundowns) can make it (win the league).

"Even when we were 11 points behind Kaizer Chiefs in the first year we won the league‚ I still said we would make it, and this was based on normal circumstance.

"But this time is the only time I can't tell you (what is going to happen)‚ I must tell you the honest truth."

Mosimane added: "So, this one (Absa Premiership race) is a difficult one‚ it is not a normal one. The normal one I know what's going to happen‚ but this one‚ I really can't tell you how it's going to pan out."
