PREMIER Soccer League (PSL) chief executive Kenny Ndebele is tipped to retain his post when his contract expires today.

Ndebele has been working on part-time basis for the top-flight league, but with the league’s board of governers having resolved to engage a full-time chief executive officer (CEO), some names had been thrown around as possible replacements.
Ndebele, who runs a company in Bulawayo, is believed to be uncomfortable taking up the full-time post, but PSL chairman Twine Phiri threw his weight behind Ndebele.
“Yes, his contract expires at the end of this month, but to me Kenny has done a wonderful job as CEO of the PSL and it is his job. He has done a brilliant job, so I think he deserves to be given the job again.
“Even if it is advertised, he is the right man for it,” said Phiri.
Ndebele posted on his facebook wall that his contract runs out today, but declined to entertain questions on whether he would reapply for the full-time job.
“My contract ends this week, but I am not commenting on that yet,” said Ndebele.
Should the job be advertised, a number of people such as former sports journalist Robson Mhandu and former Zifa CEO Oliver Kanhukamwe, who had shown interest in the post before being beaten to the job by Ndebele, are likely to renew their interests.
