Complacency might delay football restart


As different stakeholders are working day and night on how football might resume in the country, there is need for everyone to follow the preventive measures which have been put in place to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

The 2020 season was called off on 20 March, 24 hours to kick-off to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

But as Football Association of Malawi (FAM) is working on a roadmap to put in place measures to be followed once football resume, all players need to understand that they are a very important stakeholder for the spot to return hence the need for them to keep themselves safe not to be infected by the coronavirus.

Players need to stay in their homes and wear a mask whenever going out into public place but reports indicate that most elite league players are not following these rules. To make matters worse, these players have been seen taking part in socials football in different parts of the country with Mzuzu warriors player Ramadan Mtafu being the latest casualty as he got injured at such games.

These players will need to be tested for COVID-19 before games resume and if most of them will test positive, it is likely that the games will not start hence appealing to players and every involved stakeholder to stay safe not to get infected by COVID-19.
