Chiefs Star Lifts Lid On Readiness For Restart

A Kaizer Chiefs star who is bemoaning being under lockdown for three months has spoken up about the challenges when domestic football does resume.

Premier Soccer League clubs are expected to conduct Covid-19 tests and comply with the new regulations before returning to training, and striker Samir Nurkovic says he has watched with a keen eye on how the rest of the world has reacted.

“I have watched the English Premier League and La Liga,” he says, speaking on the club’s website about the two leagues back in action. 

“I have noticed how some of the players are unable to complete a full 90 minutes and things like having extra substitutions have helped. I have learned from the other leagues that it is important to manage yourself well as we get back to training and everyone will be important to the team’s course.” 

Amakhosi were top of the standings before the 2019/20 season was halted by the deadly virus outbreak back in March.

“We are in a difficult situation right now,” said Nurkovic, who is in the race for the Golden Boot with 11 goals from 19 games in the Absa Premiership.

“I do feel that when we start again, we can bring joy to the fans once again and help the current situation somewhat. It will be strange to play in an empty stadium without the energy of our fans who have been tremendous this season. But we will continue to play with them in our hearts and hopefully we end the season in a positive way.”

Gavin Hunt recieved a major boost for the remaining games this season with these players staying on
