Crafty Navua midfielder Jasnit Vikash is working hard to regain his form and start scoring goals for the Southerners in the Digicel Premier League.
The Vunicuicui native from Siberia, Labasa who turned 27 today said he is working on not only form but is also preparing mentally for the challenges ahead.
"I will just stay in my bubble and avoid celebrating my special day in a big way. I miss my parents as they are back home in Labasa. I would have loved to spend my evening with them because they are my pillar of strength. They remind me of my duties as a son, brother and a footballer.”
Vikash is yet to score a goal for newly adopted team and believes he will get better with more games.
“Due to lack of game time, spectators have seen less of me. I’m working on physical and mental fitness because it’s really important when we return to the field.”
“Training has been tough due to government restrictions but I’m putting extra effort to do training in my backyard to keep up the fitness”
“The pandemic is really harsh on everyone and we have to do personal training. It’s been six games and I haven’t scored any goals. I’m preparing hard against Nadroga so that I can earn a goal to my name.”
The 2020 Battle of the Giants Golden Boot winner who works as a bank officer adds that he manages his time well to juggle between football and work.
“It’s about time management because I work and train also. After work, I make sure that I do training while I’m strict with my diet.”
The bottom of the table clash between Navua and Moshin’s Insulation Nadroga will take place when sporting activities resume in the country.
