Castro: Why The First Training At Chiefs Village Was A Bit Hard

Leonardo Castro is happy to be back at training with Kaizer Chiefs, though admitted that the first week was a bit hard.

The Soweto giants returned to Naturena last month after a three month hiatus, where they are now underway with preparations for the resumption of the 2019/20 season. However, the situation at the training grounds are much different now, as teams have to adhere to strict protocols while going about their sessions.

“It’s good to be in our happy place again, because the pitch is our home. The first week was a bit hard for us. Also, because we couldn’t train in groups. We needed to keep distance from one another. Now, however, we are training together and that feels much better. We are training hard to become fit, regain our on-the-ball confidence, and to get into the right mindset for the restart of the league,” Castro said on their official website.

“It will be very important to win our first match, because that will keep us competitive. We need to have that winning mentality,” the Colombian went on to say, as Amakhosi were scheduled to come up against Polokwane City.

“The virus will be over. I learnt some lessons during this time. For example, it is important to keep peace of mind and to be strong. The experience has also showed us that we all need to help each other. And this is something that shouldn’t be the case in times of crisis only – it should always happen,” the 31-year-old added.
