Maritzburg United head coach Eric Tinkler has expressed his strong opposition to the idea of scrapping the current PSL season.

With the coronavirus pandemic, and consequent lockdown, suspending all football, some have suggested that the 2019/20 season could be cancelled.

However, Tinkler insists there is simply too much at stake to erase the season entirely.

"No, you can't null and void it. There's so much at stake. Amateur football can do that. It [the league] has to be completed," Tinkler told DailySun.

"I think everybody is a bit tired, to be brutally honest. Tired of not being able to train, tired of funny games, and not playing matches.

"It's an unfortunate situation we find ourselves in. But we just wait until the government gives us permission to restart.

"But everyone wants to get back to training. We want to get back to finish the league as soon as we possibly can."
