Zimbabwean defender Victor Kamhuka, who is at Ayeyawady United in Myanmar, is set to resume training today ahead of league restart next month.
The Myanmar top-flight, just like most leagues around the world, was put on hold two months ago as measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.
Authorities in the Asian country have, however, allowed football to resume with teams expected to resume training today.
Kamhuka spoke to H-Metro from his base saying it is a good feeling to be back on the pitch.
“Yes we have been given the go-ahead and training is resuming tomorrow (today), with fixtures already out. It’s good to be back, doing the thing I like most and the reality is I had missed football including all the fans.
“The league is returning on the 17th of July which gives us short time to prepare, it’s just a month,” said Kamhuka.
The towering defender said the good thing is he has been working on his fitness during lockdown.
“These are some of the reasons I have been empasising on taking individual training programmes during lockdown serious.
“It is unpredictable when football starts and since leagues wants to play catch-ups, there is no enough time to prepare. So in as far as I’m concerned, I’m ready for the continuation and finish the season strong,” he said.
The former Black Leopards and Dynamos defender who was on top of his game when the league was suspended is looking forward to carry on with his form.
His fine form has seen him voted man of the match on multiple occasions as well as the best defender in the league during lockdown.
“The coronavirus pandemic was a huge setback given my form and the performance as a team but there’s no option but refresh and keep our heads up.
“The mentality is to continue as a team and work so that we achieve our target,” he said
United, who are second on the standings, are the only team yet suffer a defeat and conceded the least, three, after ten matches.
And Kamhuka said they are out to guard the record in the 12-team National League.
“Besides winning games and trophies, it’s always good to do while setting records. This is what we are working for as a team but we will not work under pressure.
“What is needed is to remain disciplined and keep the focus,” he said.
