Without a single DStv Premiership player in Qatar, question marks have been asked about what is rated as the best league in Africa.

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Richard Ofori was nearly a sure case but sadly suffered an injury on the eve of Ghana’s squad announcement.

“I really don’t think PSL is a weak league because there’s no player in Qatar. Ofori was surely going to be there if he was fit,” the ex-Chiefs number one said via The Sowetan.

“This [the absence of PSL players in Qatar] isn’t a true reflection of the PSL. It’s just an unfortunate situation that Nigeria and Bafana Bafana didn’t qualify.

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old Akpeyi is yet to find new employment since leaving Chiefs in July.
