Kaizer Chiefs defender Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya says he and his teammates are working hard to maintain their fitness during the lockdown.

With South Africa entering the second week of a 21-day stay-at-home order as a result of the coronavirus, the Amakhosi players were given individual training programs.

The players and coaching staff have also kept in contract through online sessions.

Chiefs entered the enforced break on top of the Premiership standings, and Ntiya-Ntiya, who can't wait to get back on the pitch, says Chiefs will be ready when the season resumes.

He told Isolezwe: "We are training very hard at home as Kaizer Chiefs players. Working very hard in training will help us so that we remain in the best shape and condition when the Premier Soccer League (PSL) resumes.

"We can’t wait to get back to the field of play and be with our supporters to rally behind us. We can defeat the coronavirus if we follow the orders so that we can go back to our normal lives."

Ntiya-Ntiya though emphasised the need to stay safe during the lockdown.

"The lives of South African people is what is important at this stage because we are facing a difficult situation.

"We are urging everyone to follow the orders set out by the government regarding hygiene and communicate in the right way so that we can all be safe," he said.
