Football activities have been stopped towards the end of last month due to coronavirus pandemic which led to many players resorting to exercise at home and communicating online.

Despite the SAB League being the fourth tier of local soccer in South African football, it is also affected what has been termed the invisible enemy.

Future Masters FC shot-stopper, Tshovelo Mabasa, told Pheli Times in an exclusive interview that it will take time for players to regain fitness.

“Football is different from other activities, it needs fitness and we can’t just go and play. I think it will take time for us to get fitness but we are trying our best to keep fit,” said the 24-year old goalkeeper.

“Covid-19 ruined everything,” replied Mabasa when asked how coronavirus affected football activities.

“When I recall we have been doing well in our last matches so now that momentum will be slowed down by this deadly virus. It is a mess because the season might be canceled. We will hear from SAFA what will happen at the end,” he added.

The Atteridgeville side, Future Masters FC, are position 12 on the Tshwane SAB League stream B with 20 points in 21 matches.
