In Summary

  • For last season’s National Super League runners-up Bidco United, the quandary has stopped the team from executing transfer activities.

Following the uncertainty surrounding the resumption of sports activities in the country due to the coronavirus pandemic, many football clubs across the league are mulling whether to resume training as they eye a bright start.

Many teams have been restricted to guiding their players on keeping fit using individual training programs as they await the nod from the government.

For last season’s National Super League runners-up Bidco United, the quandary has stopped the team from executing transfer activities.

Head coach Anthony Akhulia says they will have to make arrangements on resuming training if they are to hit the road running when the new season kicks off.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Akhulia said they are pondering over the possibility of returning to training this week as they await the government’s all-clear.

“We may have to resume training this week to be ready for the new season. We have waited for the government to give us a go-ahead but we have not heard from them.

“The best alternative for us now is to resume training to assess the shape of our squad.”

He says they will work in strict conformity with the government’s restrictions on the COVID-19 pandemic to avoid any inconveniences.

“We are on with the preparation of our training resumption so that when we resume our activities will be in line with the ministry of health’s directive on the coronavirus pandemic,” he added.

He said he will monitor the shape of his squad before figuring out areas that should be reinforced.

“We will unveil our transfer plans the moments we resume training because then we will understand the situation with our squad.

“The players have been keeping fit in line with our programs so I’m expecting them to join the camp in good shape.”

After missing out on promotion last term by 15 points, a consistent run of form saw the team seal promotion by finishing second behind champions City Stars.
