Before the season was suspended due to coronavirus pandemic, Sundowns were trailing league leaders Kaizer Chiefs by four points, but with a game in hand.

“Everybody expects the season to be concluded and I think the season can be,” said Mosimane during a Sundowns press conference on Friday.

“To be honest, a month can conclude the season if we work well and do our things right in terms of precautions and adhering to health regulations. A round of eight games can be done in a month and we can complete but it is not for me to say how and when,” he added.

“It is not for me to say we can play behind closed doors. Let’s look at the way the rest of the world is doing‚ we can’t just bring everyone in.

“Germany has been successful for now‚ England have some rebounds now. I don’t know what is happening in China because I don’t have most of the information. Just follow and copy good things.

“In Spain‚ which was heavily affected‚ Barca are training. Possibly we can start with small groups‚ but before you start with small groups there is a lot of consistent testing and precautions that you have to do with facilities and disinfecting.

“I am not an expert in that and I must listen to experts,” concluded Mosimane.

With the country moving to Level 3 of lockdown, there was an expectation that PSL clubs would be allowed to start preparations for the resumption of the league action, but those hopes were dashed when President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that sporting activities remained prohibited in South Africa under Level 3.

As it stands, it is still anyone’s guess as to when the 2019/20 season will resume.
