THE Ninjas have remained focused in their training despite the Premier Soccer League’s confirmation of suspension of this weekend’s Castle Lager PSL games.

 

The decision from PSL follows some disturbing scenes that have taken place in the past few games in the local football.

 

PSL Chief Executive Officer Kenny Ndebele confirmed the suspension of matches in a press statement released on Monday.

 

“The Premier Soccer League has suspended all Castle Lager PSL matches with immediate effect until further notice following incidents of violence and hooliganism that continue to take place in our football” said Ndebele.

 

Bulawayo Chiefs were set to host Caps United at Luveve Stadium in match-day 16 but the football lovers will have to wait a little bit if not longer to watch the game.

 

The Ninjas are hoping to perpetuate their decent six match unbeaten run in the league and turn those accumulating draws into wins when the league resumes. They have bagged 10 points out of a possible 18 points. 

 

Slowly but surely, the Ninjas are steering their ship towards the right direction after suffering a setback after the transfer window.

 

Caps United find themselves on an uncharacteristic 11th position with 4 wins, 5 draws and being on the receiving end 6 times. They dream of turning those misfortunes around when the Premier League hits the ground running next week.

 

The team from the capital has failed to live up to expectations in the current season. They have made headlines for only the fossil reasons, with one of them being the player exodus and other players remerging from the Club’s principles. 

 

Local football fans will be hoping the governing body's decisions will help curb these acts for the better of local football.

 

Meanwhile the Security officer of Chiefs is set to attend the Urgent meeting of Security personnel in the PSL. This page will deliver the outcome of the meeting.
