Like the rest of this Premier Soccer League counterparts, coach Pitso Mosimane is at home during the nationwide shutdown and has sent a message to Mamelodi Sundowns supporters and the country’s civil servants during an uncertain period.
The league is currently suspended as a result of the 21-day lockdown ordered by President Cyril Ramaphosa in an effort to stop the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, a disease that has already claimed the life of one South African as the number of recorded cases continues to rise.
In a message posted on the Sundowns twitter page, Mosimane can be seen working out from the comfort of his home – but took the time to send a message to encourage fans and the whole of Mzansi during their lockdown state.
Everyone, except those providing an essential service, has been told to stay at home to avoid contracting or spreading the COVID-19.
“Hello South Africa, on behalf of Mamelodi Sundowns we would like to thank everybody who is on the frontlines – the police, the nurses, doctors, the army and volunteers, who are serving us to help save our lives,” the coach said.
“Let’s make those people’s jobs easier by washing our hands regularly, sanitising, keeping our social distance and staying at home. Thank you!”
