Kaizer Chiefs Return To Full Training
South Africa Premier Soccer League side Kaizer Chiefs has resumed training ahead of their league encounter against Sekhukhune United.
The Amakhosi missed two consecutive fixtures against Cape Town City and Golden Arrows after 36 members of the club’s staff tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
Some of the senior players who were under quarantine joined the academy players as they get ready to put together a team to take to the pitch on Sunday.
“Given that the few unaffected senior team players and the juniors stopped training, and went into quarantine as per the NICD and the Department of Health protocols, the medical team and the coaches will monitor their condition very closely to ensure they are healthy enough to play. And, with such a limited pool of players available, we have to also attempt to avoid injuries at all costs,” says Kaizer Chiefs Physician Dr Hashendra Ramjee.
“More players and members of the technical team will gradually be coming out of isolation in the coming days and the players will be supervised and managed accordingly until they are back to full health and fitness,” concludes Dr Ramjee.
Kaizer Chiefs informed PSL about the situation at the camp with the league organizing body set to discuss the issue at n executive committee meeting on Monday.
