Lazarous Kambole says our current circumstance "requires us to be strong" as he praised the support, he was receiving from Kaizer Chiefs.

The 26-year-old Zambian attacker, who joined the club from Zesco this season, admits it has been tough trying to keep fit in lockdown while reminding fans to keep safe as South Africa continues to battle the coronavirus.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I am doing well under the circumstances we find ourselves in. I believe with God’s grace that we will get through this situation.

"It is a painful experience, and it will require us to be strong, united and cooperative for us to get back to normality."

Kambole added: "It remains difficult but with the kind of support that we receive from the club, I am confident that together we will survive this difficult time. Remember football is our career, now we can't play matches which is causing us anxiety."

The striker explained that he misses his home but is looking forward to playing again - when the Premier Soccer League gets the go-ahead to resume.

"I wish I was home to battle this situation with my family. At the same time, I’m grateful to still have a job and being able to provide for my family. Thanks to the club, he said.

"I hope everyone is safe and adhering strictly to the regulations. We want to return to action and continue with life as it were. If we stay safe.

"We will be back to enjoy the stadium vibe, meeting and greeting at the roadshows and other public places."
