Zambia-based Zimbabwean players work on fitness from home

ZAMBIA-based Zimbabwean trio of Takudzwa Chimwemwe, Donald Teguru, and Joel Ngodzo (pictured) who play for Buildcon FC have adjusted to Covid-19 lockdown measures in that country as they are working on their fitness at home.

Takudzwa Chimwemwe, Donald Teguru, and reigning Castle Lager Soccer Star of the Year, Joel Ngodzo are not resting on their is laurels during the Covid-19 lockdown in their quest to impress their paymasters when football finds its way back to the stadia.

Despite the uncertainty on when the Zambian Super League will resume, the lockdown period has not in any way deterred the trio’s focus as they are now working on their fitness while at home.

One of the players Takudzwa Chimwemwe says he misses being on the pitch but was quick to point out the need to keep in shape.

Right now we are used to this lockdown as we are training alone all the time.

“However, it’s not easy training alone because there’s no push from the coach and also different than as a group, but we are getting there.

Training session in progress… Zambia-based Zimbabwean players train selves from home to stay fit amid lockdown.

“I am worried though because there’s no activity since it is our job, we really miss playing. Right now everyone is working very hard because we are fighting relegation hence we keep on following the training programmes by our coaches. We are looking forward to the resumption of the season,” he said.

Buildcon are 15th on the log standings but the team is banking on the Zimbabwean trio to steer them out of the relegation zone with 11 matches to go before the end of the season.

Buildcon was also home to another Zimbabwean trio of Devon Chafa, Partson Jaure, and Nqobizitha Masuku a couple of seasons ago. – ZBC
