JOHANNESBURG – PSL chairman Irvin Khoza believes the league has a sizeable number of players participating in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations due to the continuous improvement as a brand.
In total, there are 50 PSL registered players in Egypt as the Premiership division is represented by 46 players, while four are from the second-tier.
On Wednesday, the Group A encounter between Zimbabwe and Uganda was arguably the most-sought after match for the day by the supporters of the PSL.
Granted, the Warriors of Zimbabwe are from the Southern African region and have a huge population rate in South Africa, but the majority of supporters that were glued on their television screens were there to catch a glimpse of some of their PSL stars.
The Zimbabweans have 13 players from the PSL, while the Cranes of Uganda have two, Mamelodi Sundowns’ goalkeeper and Africa’s No 1 Denis Onyango and Cape Town City’s Ällan Kateregga, while Godfrey Walusimbi’s was at Kaizer Chiefs last season.
