Mokoena believes players are going to need more work to get ready to resume the season. He believes extra training can help prevent players from being injured.
“It is not easy to stay in shape when you are a footballer. We had to deal with pre-season and staying in shape during that time we didn’t have anything as hectic as covid-19,” Mokoena told Phakaaathi.
“Most of them haven’t done too much to stay in shape and it was because they were cooked up in their homes because of the lockdown regulation. But now that there is a bit of room for them to do more they need to train.”
The former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder says it is impossible to predict how the season can go and if the teams would be competitive.
“Whatever chance you can get away from the teammates you should use the opportunity to train and be fit because when the games get back underway there will be no time for rest and if you are unfit you will be exposed.”
