Mamelodi Sundowns’ team biokineticist gave an update on the Brazilians’ past two weeks of training.
Sundowns are currently underway with their training camp in Rustenburg after making the decision to take the team away from the COVID-19 epicentre which is now in Gauteng.
There is however, yet to be a final announcement regarding the official resumption date for the 2019/20 season, though teams in the Premier Soccer League remain hard at work as they look forward to getting back to action following a four month hiatus.
“It’s nice to have the group back after a while that is the main thing, we have been busy with the boys but the only negative is that we do not have a return date confirmed. It has made the planning of the training sessions a challenge because of the unknown date,” Sundowns’ biokineticist Stuart McGregor said on Sundowns official website.
“The Zoom sessions have helped a lot in maintaining the conditions of the players. Adjusting to it is not the same but I want to say that it’s great that we are back on the field now and they have adjusted very well. The professionalism of the boys whilst at home was superb and I commend them.
“They are handling the loading well, we are making sure that they are getting enough recovery between sessions of niggles but no real concerns but we have managed it well. The pitch was hard which was the concern, the facilities were also closed like the rest of the country but we have managed and we are looking forward to the return of the games and finish of the season,” he added.
