Tahioa wants to maintain fitness

Solomon Islander and creative Labasa midfielder Marlon Tahioa is training with the Suva football team ahead of the Digicel Premier League match against Lautoka.

Tahioa, who attends Fiji National University Samabula Campus told FijiLive that he wants to stay in form which is the reason he chose to train with the capital city boys.

He said although the Labasa vs Lautoka match will not go ahead as scheduled due to the border restrictions, but he wants to maintain his impressive form.

“I just want to utilise my time because right now we have classes online and I can’t go to North and train with the boys there. So I am grateful that I am training with the Suva players.”

“Both teams' training is different and I just want to maintain my fitness so I tend to join their training. This is my second week and returning to training after six months of staying away from football is very challenging.”

The 22-year-old joined the Babasiga Lions from Nasinu earlier this year and scored a brace of goals to help the Northerners win the Champion vs Champion title in Suva.

“It’s very difficult to get to where I was at the start of the year. The pandemic really affected my fitness because training at home is totally different from what we do on the field.”

“The major difference is our space to train. Where I stay there is not much space so I found it difficult. Also during lockdown we were not allowed to do road runs.”

“I am not just working on my midfield position but also on finishing. I am eager to score more goals for Labasa and for that a lot of hard work is required. I am ready to take the challenge and begin the finishing works.”
