Lockdown is affecting player fitness: Singh

Rewa Coach Roderick Singh says the current restrictions that are in place due to the outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting the fitness level of players.

Singh said the team is taking all precautionary measures and players are mostly at home and only those that are in the security forces are out serving the public.

“This situation is already affecting the players because all the players were in self-isolation for 14 days and did not train. Most of our players are placed in the containment zone where they can’t move around which means they can’t meet and train.”

“Well we are bound by restrictions and we need to follow that but players have been asked to do personal training within their space. If this COVID-19 outbreak continues then we might have to take some new routes so that we remain steady in the League.”

“I feel it’s a good time for players to rest their mind and also look back at their performance and take certain steps to improve on what they lack. We can’t just sit and wait for the pandemic to end but we need to show some effort from our end so that when the league resumes, we are back on foot with the best fitness level,” Singh added.

The 2020 Digicel Premier League runners up are on the second spot with 11 points after three wins, two draws and a loss.

Rewa will play their next match against Esy Kool Nadi when the sporting activities resume in the country.
