Everyone is on holiday at the moment, and so is the boss of Premier Soccer League, Trevor Phillips. Mr Phillips, who is spending his holiday at the Vaal dam, explains why he chose this location.
"The year was so busy for me with all the football and I thought that if I am in the water no one will reach me, but you did, and that means even in the water football will always catch up with me," joked Phillips, who is sometimes known as the British Bulldog.
"On Christmas day I spent it with friends here at the Vaal. I love the water and I thought that spending the day in water was the best thing to do."
"But I am only here for a couple of days and then I go back to work. I have lots of work ahead in the new year."
Phillips also said that for the new year he will just take one day off work and he won't be doing much celebrating.
"In the first half of the new year I have to get sponsorships for the First division. We need a sponsor for the restructured first division to work and that is my number one goal."
"The fixtures are going to be changed a lot because of the Africa Nations and the U23 games. I hope to finish the season in June and with most players away with the national teams it will be a challenging year for the league," Phillips added, quickly forgetting about his holiday and switching back to talking about his passion and his dreams for the game.
"I want to take this time to wish all the football fans a happy new year. And in terms of football, the PSL will always be striving to bring the best and most entertaining local football to you, the loyal fans."
