Chiefs Planning For Return Of Training

One of Kaizer Chiefs’ team doctors, Hashendra Ramjee shared some insight in to his work with the Amakhosi first team during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Teams in the Premier Soccer League are patiently waiting for official communication regarding the 2019/20 season and when it will be safe to resume action.

According to the information being made available to the public, the PSL and the South African Football Association are yet to submit their proposal to the South African Government, with level 3 of the nationwide lockdown now on the horizon.

However, in the meantime, the likes of Chiefs are already underway with the necessary preparations for the possible return of football, with team doctors having a big role to play in both the mental and physical well-being of the team.

“As a General Practitioner, my work includes working closely with other doctors in the mental health field and providing support during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our other Kaizer Chiefs doctors are also much more involved in the medical ‘frontline’ work,” Ramjee said on Chiefs official website.

“The players and technical staff all provide us with daily feedback regarding symptom screening via WhatsApp. We connect individually via telephone if there are any individual aspects that we need to manage. 

“We have also been monitoring our players’ psychological well-being during this challenging time.

“We join the weekly technical team online meetings. And as earlier mentioned, we connect with players daily via WhatsApp. One of the things that we do regularly is speaking to the players regarding medical care, when needed. 

“The medical team (including physios), Sports Science department, technical team & Club management have been planning for various training scenarios for when we are permitted back to train at the Chiefs Village, including plans for post-lockdown. We have also been involved in advising the Club regarding policies and protocols for everyone in the organisation,” he added.
