Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic has urged fans to
remain patient during the lockdown.
The 27-year-old Serbian excelled in his first season with
Chiefs, after joining from Slovakian side KFC Komarno.
A talented frontman with an eye for goal, Nurkovic netted 12
goals in 24 goals for Amakhosi.
Having been without football for a month now and separated
from his family, Nurkovic admitted it took him time to adjust to life but knows
the quickest way to get back to normal is to stay home until it is safe to do
He told the club's official website: "At the beginning,
it was slightly difficult. I had to get used to training from home. I was
concerned about my family and how the coronavirus will affect us all.
"Now I’m doing well. I have used this time to gain more
mental strength. It is very important and I'm going to need this strength when
we return to the field."
He added: "I dedicate time to follow developments back
home. So far, I am satisfied to learn that my family is safe and healthy. I
wish them all of the best every day.
"As much as this lockdown may seem as a setback, I know
it's not permanent. After this, we will return much stronger.
"I hope everyone is keeping well and safe indoors. I
just want to urge everyone to be patient with this lockdown.
"The more we follow the regulations, the sooner the
lockdown will be lifted.
"Remember, it is the right thing to do because our
health is a priority. I look forward to seeing you from the pitch side."
