Orlando Pirates Take Precautionary Measures to Avoid Kaizer Chiefs' Covid-19 Situation

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that the club has taken precautionary measures to avoid Covid-19 outbreak that happened to their neighbours Kaizer Chiefs.

Amakhosi are currently facing one of the most unfortunate situations after 36 employees of the club tested positive to the pandemic.

That led to the club's training bases to close temporary as the rest of the team went to quarantine.

Pirates coach Mandla Ncikazi insisted that the club want to play all of their games undisturbed by the pandemic after they saw their neighbours being disturbed.

The club will host TS Galaxy this coming weekend after coming from a 1-1 draw against Amazulu in mid week game.

Ncikazi has confirmed that one of the club's plans to play their games without being disturbed by the virus is that they have put some of their Idiski challenge players on standby in cases of emergency.

The coach also revealed that Pirates have been in a bubble for some weeks now.

The coach also revealed that the club have also been infected and affected by the virus because they live in the same country like everybody else.

"But the measures have been made by our management in terms of MDC players, starting to be prepared in case it gets worse," said the coach.

He added that they are guided by the PSL because they are the ones who make the rules and if there are any changes the league will let them know.

Ncikazi concluded that after Pirates have been affected by the virus he gives credit to the club's management to try and accommodate the situation.

After playing against TS Galaxy on Saturday, Pirates will be left with Swallows FC, Mamelodi Sundowns, Marumo Gallants and AmaZulu for the year before the club resume the season next year.

The Buccaneers are currently occupying the seventh position in the log table after the club failed to move following a draw against Amazulu.
