FUFA Big League side UPDF FC head Coach Steven Bogere is worried about the drop in players’ fitness levels as football along with other sports disciplines are temporarily suspended.
As Uganda is currently in lockdown to allow the medics arrest the Coronavirus situation, professional football is at a standstill.
This leaves UPDF’s gaffer Bogere Worried to say the least anticipating a lapse in player training routines.
“I’m very worried and concerned about the fitness levels of the players. It’s difficult for the playing staff to continue with their own individual training routines and maintain their fitness levels during this isolation,” said Bogere.
He added, “It will be difficult for the players to keep fit and resume business on a high as it was before the lockdown. And they can’t undergo individual drills without close monitoring so I think we shall go back to zero.”
Steven Bogere who doubles as Buddu Ssaza team head coach in the Masaza Cup tournament is hopeful that both league and cup will resume.
Current FUFA Big League standings pit UPDF FC on 23 points, top of the Rwenzori Group, a point ahead of Kitara FC and Ndejje University in the 2nd and 3rd positions respectively.
