Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns are back together... but things are not at all the same.
While most clubs in the PLS have just returned to their usual training bases, Sundowns did things a little differently by camping in North West’s Rustenburg.
“Being back has not been easy, it’s a new way of life and we have to have this new way of life as our normal life. It’s difficult since we have to walk around with masks on all the time, which means we can’t breathe easily but we have to observe the health issues and be exempliaries,” Mosimane said via the club’s website.
“When we usually meet for camp we greet each other, hug each other, say hello but now we meet each other on a WhatsApp group because when we arrived at camp we each got a key for our rooms, then we went straight to our rooms, and this is so we stick to the rules set out by the doctors so that we don’t hang around. So I’m asking players how they are, through a WhatsApp group, calls or going room to room.
“It’s a different type of training, with small groups of 4, it takes a lot of time and it’s expensive because we have to make sure we have all the right equipment, we have to sanitize the balls, disinfecting the freekick men, disinfecting the bibs, it’s hard to believe what we have to do to train,” concluded the current Coach of the Season who has now been rejoined by Rulani Mokwena as an assistant.
In the meantime, the PSL and SAFA are still yet to make the anticipated announcement on the restart of the Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship.
