The SA Institute for Drug-Free Sport's (SAIDS) chief executive officer, Khalid Galant, has confirmed the drug testing of Premier Soccer League (PSL) players has never been suspended.

This after comments made by SA Football Association (SAFA) chief medical officer Thulani Ngwenya in Soccer Laduma and Sunday World.

Reports said routine drug testing in the PSL stopped five years ago as requested by FIFA, which Galant disputed as not being the case.
