Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has put the local league to a halt, local players have been out of the game for a long time bringing the question of their fitness and performance

With the Afcon qualifiers against Algeria likely to be played in November, the Warriors coach, Logarusic has made some indications that he will rely on international players if the league does not start on time.

 Since the induced lockdown restrictions on the 28th of March, the local league is yet to begin leaving players with the responsibility to train on their own home.

Logarusic indicated to Daily News that only active players like those based in Europe and South Africa will be part of his squad

We are in a bit of a tricky situation. If nothing changes really, the selection will only be for foreign-based players

“I can’t call local-based players who are not active. Selection can only be from Europe, South Africa and other active leagues. I’m currently following players in Europe, and I was impressed by this young boy from Swansea (Tivonge Rushesha), who won an award

Regarding the CHAN, a league specifically for local based players, Logarusic replied, “for Chan, we must also make sure we do something.”

I’m banking that the association will do their best and organise maybe a camp. If the government gives the green light to start football, we will have to start Chan preparations as soon as possible.
