Renowned legal eagle Advocate Zola Majavu has returned to the hotseat of Premier Soccer League prosecutor.

Advocate Majavu was once the chief executive officer of the PSL, but resigned abruptly back in October 2011 amid much controversy. He had initially graduated to the position after coming into much acclaim as a prosecutor at the organisation.

His return comes weeks after former PSL prosecutor Nande Becker resigned from the post. While reasons were not given for his resignation, it happened amid a storm of legal battles the league was embroiled, including the Kaizer Chiefs Covid-19 postponement saga.

According to Sowetan LIVE, Majavu's tenure would run until the end of the 2021/22 season at the very least. There were no indications whether it would be made permanent at that point.

Response to the news varied from negative to cynical.

Mahlakwena Shai said:

"On a temporarily or permanent basis!? If it is something to go by, surely the PSL is a circus. We need fresh and young blood."

Mo Kobe said:

"It's about time they give chance to young blood. Majavu should decline the offer."

Kgoši Tshwantshi said:

"He is running away from practicing in courts because he always losing."

Krk Mathabatha said:

"Isn't he the lawyer that represented Hlaudi Motshweneng or Mr Zuma?"

Tshephang Khuselo said:

"It wouldn't be such a bad idea bringing him back. However, PSL is made up of greedy and power hungry men and women who aren't interested in football development. My wish is for the PSL to increase the number of teams to 18."
