Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic is itching for a return to the pitch after over three months of training alone in the comfort of his home.
Amakhosi players are expected to report for training next week having submitted all the documents needed by the PSL for the go-ahead.
"I am definitely looking forward to training. It has been a while since I last trained with the ball. As a professional, you cannot wait to get back on the pitch and do what is relevant to your passion of playing the game," Nurkovic told the Chiefs website.
"At the end of the season, we normally have just one month off but now it has been three months of no proper training.
"This means as we resume training, we need to be cautious. We will be guided by the technical team and coaching staff as we ease our way back. It will be crucial for us to be mentally tough in the days ahead.
"We are in a difficult situation right now. I do feel that when we start again, we can bring joy to the fans once again and help the current situation somewhat.
"It will be strange to play in an empty stadium without the energy of our fans who have been tremendous this season but we will continue to play with them in our hearts and hopefully, we end the season in a positive way."
