Hendrick Ekstein has reiterated the importance of maintaining fitness during the nationwide lockdown.

The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, is currently plying his trade with Sabail FK in the Azerbaijan Premier League.

He has already been confined to his home since February unlike South African soccer players, who are only on day five of isolation.

Speaking to the Citizen, the 28-year-old explained: "I’ve been in isolation since last month (February) around the 28th or 29th.

"It’s been very long but we had to do it because of the virus and we are not sure when the season will resume."

Ekstein, who has also played for Sabah in Azerbaijan, added: "When it comes to keeping fit and training - each and every one of us at the club has been given a training program of their own because it’s very important to keep fit.

"So, luckily for me, there is a gym where I stay and the guy who owns the gym sometimes opens it up for me so that I can train alone, but most of the time I train at my place because it’s much safer."
