Kaizer Chiefs Finally Return to Training, See When the Club will Play Again

Kaizer Chiefs have finally returned to training after the club's training bases were closed due to the outbreak of the Covid-19.

The club confirmed last week Friday that 31 of their players tested positive to the virus.

On Tuesday this week the club confirmed another 5 players have tested positive to the virus which brought the total to 36 cases.

New reports suggest that the team is back at training with hopes that the club's missed fixtures could be moved to a new date.

This comes after the club missed their games against Golden Arrows and Cape Town City.

However there are possibilities that the fixtures could not the rescheduled instead Amakhosi could be docked six points for not honouring the fixtures.

This comes after the league did not approve the club's request to postpone their games due to the outbreak of the virus.

A close source to the club confirmed that the team returned to training on Tuesday.

"They are training. But just a few of the players. We are not sure yet as to when the team will again play," said the source.

The source added that it is not the whole team, but only those players who are feeling better are training.

The source said the club is still putting a team together and the players are just training to stay fit and no one knows what will happen after that.

The source also believes that the team will not be docked points because the protocols are not the same.

The source concluded that Chiefs sent a letter to the league where other team did not and that what makes their case different.

The club will host the high flying Sekhukhune United at FNB Stadium on their next game this coming weekend, Sunday.

However it remains to be seen if Amakhosi will honour the fixture.
