Covid-Hit Kaizer Chiefs Back In Training

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Kaizer Chiefs on Friday said the team has returned to training following the Covid-19 outbreak that affected more than 30 players and staff.

Last week Chief’s announced that owing to the high number of positive Covid-19 tests the club had asked the PSL to postpone their scheduled matches.

There has been no public response from the PSL as to whether Chiefs’ request to reschedule some matches was granted or not.

Chiefs, who were second on the log when disaster hit, temporarily closed its headquarters in Naturena after the outbreak in which as many as 36 people tested positive.

However, the team appeared to have sufficient players recovered to resume training ahead of Sunday’s match against former midfield rock Willard Katsande and his new team – Sekhukhune.

Amakhosi have also roped in reserve team players to make up the numbers at training.

Chiefs’ website quoted the team’s doctor, Dr. Hashendra Ramjee, as saying: “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”.

Sekhukhune are now second on the log. Having missed two games, the AmaKhosi are now lying fifth.

The match on Sunday will be played at FNB at 18:00.
