Kakasi aims to better his scoring form

Ba striker Darold Kakasi is keeping himself safe during this pandemic and trains daily as he wants to be in the best possible form when football matches resume in the country.

The 22-year-old Solomon Islander who has been in the country for the past three years told FijiLive he has adjusted well and does not miss home as Ba is his home for now.

"I miss my family back in the Solomon Islands but I cannot do much as the borders are closed. When things were okay, I would make 2-3 trips every year and spend time with my family."

"I have a family here in Ba too. The football players and officials are my bigger family and they ensure I am being well looked after during this pandemic."

"I am a fulltime player and do not study or work here so things get a little boring when there are no games happening. But I have to adjust and adapt to every situation," he said.

Kakasi, who has scored only one goal this season said he is using the current time to work on his speed and skills.

"I have only scored once and need to better my scoring form. I am working on my fitness. It is hard to train alone but I do road running, short sprints and do a lot of ball work."

"I want to be in my best form when games resume so I start scoring goals and help Ba win matches and some tournaments as last year we did not do that well and could not win tournaments."

His message to other footballers is to keep safe and continue working hard during the current break from football.

"This is a tough time but it is also a time when our strength and character is put to test. We should train hard, give our body the rest it needs, eat healthy and also drink a lot of water to keep our body hydrated at all times."

"By staying fit and focused during this time will make things easy for us when games start again as we will be able to adjust quickly and by being fit, we will also avoid injuries and fatigue," he added.
