Magubane: “I am hoping that football resumes in the country soon”


AmaZulu FC winger Siphelele Magubane has opened up on how he is missing football amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The current season was suspended indefinitely due to COVID-19 last March just when Usuthu were looking to build on their 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs.

Magubane played 73 minutes as the KwaZul Natal team stunned the Absa Premiership log leaders at the iconic FNB Stadium on March 7.

The country is in lockdown that was imposed to stem the spread of the deadly virus and Magubane revealed how this has affected him.

“Honestly speaking, it has not been easy because we have had to put everything on hold,” – Magubane. Picture: AmaZulu.

“It has also been difficult not being able to see my daughter for such a long time.”

The season was halted with Magubane having made five appearances in the Absa Premiership after joining Usuthu as a free agent last January.

The 27-year-old player is looking forward to returning to football when it’s safe to do so as he misses playing the beautiful game.

“On top of that, I also miss football. Everybody misses football,” the left-footed player added.

“But we all have to respect the regulations of the state regarding the lockdown until it’s safe enough to play again.

“I am hoping that football resumes in the country soon.”

Magubane was snapped up by AmaZulu after he parted ways with Lamontville Golden Arrows last January.
