Thabo Nodada has joined his Cape Town City teammate and captain in recording a message of hope for the country as the 21-day lockdown nears to bring Mzansi to a standstill with football still suspended.
Following president Cyril Ramphosa’s decision to declare a state of disaster because of the Coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the globe, the City midfielder has been confined to the four walls at home in isolation.
In a recorded message, Nodada said, “Just sending some love and light to everyone in the country and asking everyone to help beat this Coronavirus. I am asking everybody to stay safe, keep to good hygiene and beat this together so that people can go back to work and kids can go back to school – and I can go back to playing football and doing what I love. I have no doubt we will beat it as a country, take care….”
The 21-day lockdown begins at midnight on Thursday until April 16.
PSL matches have been halted with around seven or eight matches to go in both the Absa Premiership and the GladAfrica Championship, although the hope is that the 2019/20 season can be completed by June 30.
