Premier Soccer League (PSL) chairperson Irvin Khoza says the loss of the Telkom Knockout for the upcoming season is a "blessing in disguise".

Telkom withdrew their sponsorship for the annual cup competition meaning the Premier Soccer League will be left with just the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup competitions, alongside the DStv Premiership next term.

But with the 2019/20 league kicking off later than usual as a result of the delay in last season due to the coronavirus, Khoza has welcomed the easing of the fixture schedule as a result.

"It is good to be one competition less this season. It is blessing in disguise," Khoza said during a press conference held in Johannesburg.

"Companies are suffering from different constraints. It shows the magnitude of the damage caused by the coronavirus. That's why we are proud of DStv, who have come on board under these circumstances.

"There are one or two companies that were engaged, but DStv came to the party. Telkom has been a very good sponsor of our."

Khoza added that he expects the competition to resume next season.

"I can definitely confirm that next season someone is going to take over from Telkom.

"Yes, Telkom is no longer with us but next season there will be another competition taking this space of Telkom."
