Williams: We need to stay healthy then focus on finishing the League strongly


Ronwen Williams says as much as the novel coronavirus pandemic killed SuperSport United’s momentum as they had already got back to winning ways, the most important thing at the moment is ensure they stay safe and healthy.

“It [coronavirus] definitely came at the wrong time for us, as we just got six points off our last two matches,” Williams told the club’s website.

Before the Premier Soccer League (PSL) suspended the League due to coronavirus fears, ‘Matsatsantsa’ won two consecutive matches in the Absa Premiership as they comfortably beat Highlands Park 2-0 in Tembisa and Bidvest Wits with the same score line at Mbombela Stadium.

“We had good momentum and confidence going into the Bloemfontein Celtic game [which has been postponed due to Covid19], but we need to stay healthy first and then focus on finishing the league strongly.” – Williams. Picture courtesy of SuperSport United.
Williams is positive that medical experts will find a cure for the deadly virus and admits that the “main priority right now shouldn’t be the loss of income but rather the safety and health of the players, staff and family members.”

“At this moment everything is having a negative effect due to the Covid19, but people shouldn’t panic as everything will eventually pick back up,” he said.

“The experts have done extremely well by giving us all the basic information on how to stay healthy and safe during this difficult time, it shouldn’t only be due to this virus it should remain forever, where South Africans practice healthy habits to cleanse our society and country.

“Everyone who has a voice in society should use their voice to firstly make aware of the crisis that’s going on and then find positive solutions going forward so that the virus does not become deadly in South Africa,” concluded Williams.

The 28-year-old Bafana Bafana international has been a standout performer for his side this season with 14 clean sheets in 31 games in all competitions which makes him the leader of the pack of shot shoppers with the most clean sheets in the 2019/20 season.
