“Comprised of the CEO [Motlanthe] and Compliance Officers while NSL was represented by the acting CEO [Mato Madlala],” read the Safa statement.

“We had a very cooperative and cordial meeting and we mutually agreed to have a follow-up meeting on Monday to deliberate issues with regards to return to training and play.
