Football in France, like most of the world, has come to a halt due to the Coronavirus outbreak taking place across the globe, with Ligue 1 having last played a game on March 8 – almost two months ago.

Now though, with hopes that the country is taking control of the pandemic, it has been reported that Zungu, Dolly, the other South African players playing in France, and their teammates could be back in training as early as next month – but with strict regulations.

GFFN reported this week, “The LFP have this afternoon published the initial details of the medical plan to get French football in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 back on the road following this period of COVID-19 induced disruption.

“The protocol, developed in collaboration with the FFF Medical Commission and the doctors of each of the Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 clubs, includes all the provisions required for players to return to their respective training centres during the week of May 11th, which includes the completion of a full medical check-up (cardiological, virological and psychological tests), as well as PCR COVID-19 tests.

“Daily medical monitoring will also occur from that point onward, which will be detailed in a further release at the end of this month.”

As well as Zungu at Amiens and Dolly at Montpellier, there are also players such as Lebogang Phiri (EA Guingamp) and Lebo Mothiba (RC Strasbourg) playing in France at present.
