Kaizer Chiefs are gearing up for their return to The Village in anticipation that PSL football will soon return in order to see out the league title race.
The club has provided an update through team doctor Dr. Hashendra Ramjee, who has discussed some of the protocols currently in place to manage COVID-19 within the first team.
With the pandemic yet to reach its peak in South Africa, the PSL is hoping to resume the 2019/20 season by July 1.
The log leaders will, therefore, need to ensure they practice stringent hygiene processes if they are to continue their hunt for the Absa Premiership title to end their worst trophy drought in Amakhosi’s 50-year history.
“The players and technical staff all provide us with daily feedback regarding symptom screening via WhatsApp. We connect individually via telephone if there are any individual aspects that we need to manage,” explained Ramjee on Chiefs’ website.
“We have also been monitoring our players’ psychological well-being during this challenging time. We join the weekly technical team online meetings.
“And, as earlier mentioned, we connect with players daily via WhatsApp. One of the things that we do regularly speak to the players regarding medical care when needed.
“The medical team [including physios], sports science department, technical team, and club management have been planning for various training scenarios for when we are permitted back to train at the Chief’s Village, including plans for post-lockdown.
“We have also been involved in advising the club regarding policies and protocols for everyone in the organization.”
