Italy based Banyana Banyana midfielder Refiloe Jane has sent out a message to all South African soccer lovers who might be concerned about her well-being in the most affected country by COVID-19.
Jane is based in the city of Milan which is in Italy’s northern Lombardy region which has also been heavily affected by the pandemic.
The Banyana vice-captain who is also on a lockdown away from home says she has been keeping fit while the season remain suspended.
“To all those who have been worried about my well-being here in Italy I just want to let you know that I am fine, I am healthy, I am keeping fit and I am doing what I’m being told to do because it is very important to follow the instructions from the authorities because they know best,” said Jane in a video message.
The 27-year-old also had an advice for fellow South Africans to follow the instructions given by the powers that be during the national lockdown period, until April 16.
“Please follow instructions from the authorities they know best so let us all try and do our part in following the instructions. Let us practice good hygiene, was our hands with water and soap for not less than 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizers where possible and during lockdown let us all try stay at home,” she said.
Jane has made a huge impact since joining the ‘Rossoneri’ making 15 appearances and scoring 2 goals.
