COVID-19 Gave Us Much Needed Family Time - Vila

Mamelodi Sundowns forward Sibusiso Vilakazi admitted that even though he misses football, he is enjoying much needed family time which he wouldn't have enjoyed had it not been for the coronavirus suspension.


The PSL season was suspended over three months ago due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and Vilakazi admits it has been frustrating to be away from football for so long however on the bright side, given the jam-packed schedule of Mamelodi Sundowns both in the country and on the continent, it has been a great bonding period for him and his family.


"There's a positive side and the negative side of the break - the negative being that it has gone on beyond what we anticipated and led to a bit of frustration," Vilakazi told the club's website.


"We thought by now we would be back doing what we do best, which is playing football. We thought things would get back to normal in terms of it being okay for us to go back, and given the medical greenlight.


"But the positive side is of course the opportunity to bond with our families because we are away so much. We participate in the CAF Champions League and that in itself takes so much time away from family. The beautiful side is seeing your children daily now."
