Khoza laments lack of credit

Irvin Khoza laments lack of credit as PSL chairman

Posted: 9 November 2012 Time: 11:59 am

Newly re-elected PSL chairman Irvin Khoza has suggested he does not get enough credit for the work he has done for the League in his position.

Khoza, who is credited for a sterling job with regards to the finances of the League, made the suggestion on Thursday after he was elected unopposed for a fifth term at the NSL quadrennial elections held at Gold Reef City.

"Here [in South Africa], you don't know if you are doing good or bad. When something goes wrong, someone must be blamed and if you do best, nobody says, 'keep on going, brother'," he bemoans.

"When you listen to radio stations, they always make references about people who are no more saying, 'This guy was a great man'. Today you are not a great man, but die tomorrow and they will say, 'Oh, what a nice man he was'," Khoza adds.

According to a recent City Press article, the League has during Khoza's tenure as chairman jumped from a business pulling in R100-million a year to R600-million.

This was largely thanks to the R1.6-billion broadcast deal with SuperSport International, as well as deals of R500-million each with Absa and Nedbank.

Meanwhile, the 'Iron Duke' was non-committal over his long-term future as PSL chairman. He ducked a question over whether he will seek re-election at the end of the new four-year term.

Khoza argued that those who put him in power a decade ago will make the call on his future.

"I didn't canvass ... I was elected unopposed [yesterday]. Even the first time I didn't ask to stand [for the position]. I was asked to stand. If they say it is enough, I will go," the 64-year-old adds.

Khoza has been at the helm since 2002, which means he will have served 14 years as League chairman by the end of the new term.

They are ungrateful Dr Khoza, it is only now that we see how much we miss Thabo Mbeki, now that we feel the downward spiral we are experiencing as citizens of this country.

Khoza PSL's success is not only because of your good work but also because of people around you, Mato, Kaizer and the others. A leader needs his team to succeed, and a team needs it's leader to succeed.No one/organisation can DO IT without the help of the others.Well done for a good job but remember to mention your coleagues(committee members) when you plead/ask for HONOUR,

I agree, He is a gud leader bt He must stop his selfishness & stop using his position (in general) to benefit Pirates & Chiefs in terms of sponsorships, we need a leader who view things in broader way.

You cant be in one position for more than 10 years and expect praises. we believe in changes especially in Soccer. You are irrelevant now but you cant realise that because you are power hungry.

@ Nespray is a movie star look alike coach,

I am thinking of venturing into the logistics business but do not have enough space to park the truck I may buy. Do you think the madam would still have enough space in her garage after swallowing both the horse & a donkey?

Xozaness: dont play the man, play the ball, depict maturity if u want to be treated as such, good behavior breed good behavior.

U dont visit a mans house and start questioning the manner in which things are done.

Its my responsibility on this site, to deal with people like you, who whats to impose standards by not contributing anything.

My name is KING and i am awesome.

Ahh! Nespray! You disappointed me me big time, Kaizer Motaung is an older & very respected human being, he is not always surrounded by controversy, I would have expected more matured & decent joke than that especially as an African brother. I do not believe thats how you were brought up ( to disrespect your elders) Suggesting that Kaizer Motaung sleeps with his daughter is out of order Bra!
