“I think we all know that this is not a normal situation we are in at the moment‚ so I’m expecting players to take full responsibility and look after themselves,” Letsholonyane told the Sowetan

“They must stay fit and be ready to return to action when it is decided that the league is going to resume,” said the 37-year-old former Bafana Bafana playmaker.

“My advice to players would be to continue training and follow the programmes they were given by the clubs. They must also eat and drink things that will supplement their bodies after their work-out sessions.

“It’s time to show maturity from both the experienced and younger players‚ everyone must grow up and respect their jobs. It is very difficult to perform at your best when you are not fit‚ so fitness matters.”
