CLARK ON LEOPARDS’ LOCKDOWN
Posted; 17 April 2020
The Premier Soccer League has been on pause due to the world pandemic the Corona Virus, shortly known as COVID-19. The virus has forced football clubs in the ABSA Premiership and internationally to close shop for the foreseeable future as football heads ponder what to do next.
One of the clubs affected by this pandemic, like all PSL clubs is Limpopo-based side Black Leopards, and this website had an opportunity to speak to interim Head Coach Alan Clark, he said
“We are all on lockdown like all the clubs, and we are no different, but what we have done is that the players have gone home with training programs that they can all do in their homes”, he continued to say “so the training program is based on body weight, a little bit of cardio, a little bit of body weight power exercises.”
Asked if how they communicate during these trying times, he said “We stay in constant contact via Whatsapp messages, and phone calls, and use technology to our advantage and we are thankful we have technology at our disposal really.”
Lidhoda Duvha, as Leopards are known, are currently 16th on the PSL log standings and will be hoping to fight their way out of the quagmire when the league does resume.
