Buchanan: I can't be biased for Chiefs


Maritzburg United midfielder Keagan Buchanan has refused to say that his former club Kaizer Chiefs should be given the Absa Premiership title this season.

Buchanan believes the PSL leadership will come up with a solid solution for the domestic season, which has been on a forced break for over a month due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 29-year-old, speaking with media in a video press conference last week, shared his views on what should happen.

"It is like asking me if Liverpool should win the league. Look, I'm not going to be biased and say Chiefs should get the league," Buchanan explained.

"If you're looking at form and what they have done this season, I would say that Chiefs should win the league [if the season resumes]. If you ask me where we should finish, and we are sitting fifth now, I would say we deserve to finish there if they cancel the league.

"We have to give them [Chiefs] credit that they are on top of the league and they have managed to stay there for long. If you look at France and Belgium, they have given the league to teams on top of the table."

However, Buchanan is aware that the final say will come from the authorities and he believes as tough as it, the leadership led by Irvin Khoza will come up with the best solution for everyone.

"I mean, we have a very intelligent chairman of the League and he will implement the right structures in a way of going forward when they call us back," he assured.

The PSL Executive Committee is set to meet again this week to discuss a way forward after last Thursday's meeting was hit by news that Orlando Pirates star Ben Motshwari has tested positive for COVID-19.
