Golden Arrows head coach Steve Komphela has called on all men to look after their families during what is a difficult time for the country.

As South Africa enters a second week of a 21-day lock down as a result of the coronavirus, the Golden Arrows boss has delivered a strong message.

With families forced to remain in their homes for extended periods there is always the concern that increased frustrations could lead to greater tensions in homes.

And writing on his Twitter account, Komphela stressed the importance for men especially to be protectors and providers to their families.

He posted: "The message is directed to us men...as men we are not only protectors, we are providers. We are not only providers, we are protectors. Inasmuch as we know time for provision is when we (can) go to work and come back and provide for our families it is now the time when we need to protect.

"It is not protection of family or yourself on the outside (on the streets). But the protection of them inside (our homes), even the protection of them against us.

"Let us try not being only the shield, not only the providers but the be the protection as well. Please, gentlemen, let us look after our families. As I said if you have nothing positive to say, absolutely nothing.

"Take your position, maintain your space. Move away from an environment that will mislead you into actually be doing the wrong things.

"And as I said, keep clean, go for good smells, look for everything in a positive light. Listen to everything more positively.

"When you look at life like that then everything just becomes easy. See right, hear right, feel right. The minute those three happen, you will feel right and act right and the outcome will definitely be the right one.

"Let’s just to get a positive filer all the way. Provide and protect."
