Mamelodi Sundowns

How Downs Are Handling PSL Shutdown

Following the Premier Soccer League's temporary lockdown that was announced by chairman Irvin Khoza last week, another top club has reacted by asking players to stay at home as a safety measure during the Coronavirus outbreak.

The Siya crew has been informed that Mamelodi Sundowns are currently not training and will be away from their Chloorkop base until, at least, April 4, while there are no topflight matches because of the spread of the COVID-19.

Downs, the reigning Absa Premiership champions, are four points behind log leaders Kaizer Chiefs and have a game in hand, but have to wait until the 2019/20 season resumes to try and reduce the gap at the summit.

The Brazilians were last in action on March 14 when they beat Highlands Park 1-0 to progress to the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup. Downs would have faced Orlando Pirates three days later, but Khoza then announced the suspension of all PSL matches after President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a state of disaster in the country on March 15.

It’s thought Sundowns players may return to the training ground sometime early next month, but for now being disciplined and training on their own to keep fit while in self-isolation as the Coronavirus situation worsens will have to suffice.
