Premier Soccer League (PSL) senior manager Lux September says there is no easy solution to resolving the league if soccer is unable to continue this season.

All sporting activities have been suspended as South Africa tries to get to grips with the coronavirus.

With a 21-day lockdown currently in effect, all players are currently training on their own at home, while the PSL hopes to return to training at least by June 16.

However, there are no provisions in place should the league be abandoned, where Kaizer Chiefs currently lead the PSL standings.

September told : "The rules say nothing (about giving league table leaders the title).

"There are no easy solutions for anyone, not just in South Africa but anywhere else. So if we say someone must get the trophy what happens to relegation. What happens to clubs who are in the Caf Champions League who have to play Absa Premiership matches.

"There are some clubs who have played 22, some 23, some 24 games because of cup commitments.

"Our games are postponed so far we are not sure when we will resume, we can't give the trophy it is not that simple."
