Chiefs Hitman: It’s Not Permanent

Kaizer Chiefs’ Samir Nurkovic has been a shining light in the list of Amakhosi transfers in recent years, but his impressive debut season may still be cut short…

The 27-year-old hit the ground running as one of Ernst Middendorp’s first signings of the 2019/20 season, bagging 12 goals in all competitions so far as he continues to stay in the race for the Absa Premiership Golden Boot.

While the former Komárno striker waits to see when league football will return to South Africa, he admits that he has concerns over his family back in eastern Europe as they too deal with the Coronavirus that is playing havoc across the world.

Nurkovic, however, is remaining positive about the situation, and says that he’s using the time in lockdown for good as he prepares to get back with a bang if football does return.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Serbian said, “At the beginning it was slightly difficult… I had to get used to training from home. I was concerned about my family and how the Coronavirus will affect us all. Now I’m doing well! I have used this time to gain more mental strength. It is very important and I’m going to need this strength when we return to the field.

“I dedicate time to follow developments back home, so far I am satisfied to learn that my family is safe and healthy. I wish them all of the best every day.”

He also went on to say, “As much as this lockdown may seem as a setback, I know it’s not permanent. After this we will return much stronger… I hope everyone is keeping well and safe indoors.

“I just want to urge everyone to be patient with this lockdown. The more we follow the regulations, the sooner the lockdown will be lifted. Remember, it is the right thing to do because our health is a priority. I look forward to seeing you from the pitchside.”
