Polokwane City defender Denis Chembezi has conceded to the fact that his club will have to start from scratch post the COVID-19 pandemic.
City had started to pick up their form in pursuit of fighting relegation with two victories in their last three matches.
The Malawian international was also starting to command a regular spot in the team’s defence after joining in January from Malawian side Mighty Wanderers.
“Actually I am worried that the league had to stop because generally the team’s performance will go down because of not having our trainings,” he told FARPost.
“We won’t be the same after this sad moments, it’s like we will be starting over again”, said Chembezi
The 23-year-old who is a Muslim in religion also had words of advice for fellow spiritual people.
“I am a Muslim and spiritually my advice is that the Quran said this clearly that during the end of time the world will experience a lot of strange diseases and this COVID-19 can be one of the signs. Therefore let us be spiritually strong so that we build a strong relationship between us and God,” he added.
Chembezi also spoke of having fellow Malawian footballers in the Absa Premiership like Richard Mbulu, Gerald Phiri Junior, Gabadinho Mhango and Khuda Muyaba.
“The fact that Malawian players are joining the SA Premiership is good news to every Malawian, because this means that there is an improvement in Malawian football. Meeting them here reminds us that at some point we are still Malawians in language so I feel great.”
The centre-back has been capped six times by the Flames national team.
