James Kotei clarifies comments on South African League quality

Ghanaian midfielder James Kotei has explained the negative comments attributed to him about the quality of the South African Premier League.
Reports have emerged this week quoting Kotei allegedly questioning the quality of the PSL based on his observation from his spell with Amakhosi. 
The 26-year-old Ghanaian reportedly praised the Tanzanian League for their quality, and as quoted by Tanzania’s Daily News, and has allegedly said that the only difference between them and the PSL is are minor things, with Mzansi apparently only superior in the coverage of matches. 
Speaking to the Siya crew, Kotei seems to think that his message might have been misunderstood.
“I would like to address the issue that I said South African league is not a quality league but the camera league. That is not true!” he said.
“A Tanzanian television station called me and I was making reference to their league that it’s a good league because at times people look down on them, and that I had been in South Africa and what I saw is that their branding and coverage is super. In Tanzania it’s not easy,” the central midfielder added.
“In South Africa they play normal football the way it is played in the world. That was my explanation to them. South African league and the Egyptian league are recognised big time. So, how can I belittle the league,” Kotei told the Siya crew.     
Kotei is currently with Salvia Mozyr in the Belarusian Premier League, having joined them in January after his unsucessful six-month stint in Naturena. 
Kotei had joined Chiefs from Tanzanian club, Simba in July last year.
