Chiefs Mentor: We Will Need A Few Weeks…

While teams in the Premier Soccer League have been keeping fit via virtual training, once football returns, they will still need some time to get back to match fitness.

After two months of zero action due to the COVID-19 pandemic, domestic football remains suspended indefinitely, and while the Premier Soccer League and the South African Football Association continue to engage one another in finding a way forward for the 2019/20 campaign, it could be some time before an official decision is made.

With that being said, once there is a decision about if and when the 2019/20 season will resume, teams will need some more time to spend on field training in order to get back their match fitness.

Speaking on Kaizer Chiefs’ official website, Head Coach Ernst Middendorp, who spoke of how he has been utilising the ‘football break’ for player reports, also mentioned that while everyone is eager to get back to football action, the situation still needs to be approached carefully.

“When we eventually return to the training field, we will need a few weeks to reactivate the football practice and match fitness of the players. We have noticed, however, that everyone is eager to get back on the pitch, although, of course, we all understand the situation needs a very sensitive and a careful approach,” he said.
