Premier Soccer League teams will take guidance from the government as to when it might be safe to resume training and matches, with a 21-day lockdown period ending on April 16.

Speaking to the Sowetan, Larsen said: "We are waiting for our leaders to give us direction, which will happen very soon.

"When April 16 comes and the government makes an announcement based on the current situation, then we will have more direction. I mean we only have a few games to go and that could be played within a month.

"So the league will have to decided based on the news from the government if the situation is bad, they will make a decision and probably push the dates back and if the situation improves, I'm sure they will give us a date to start."

He added: "Each country is different, that's what people don't understand. The number of confirmed cases in each country is different and so are the number of deaths in each country."
