Kota Kinabalu: All the Sabah Tambadau players and officials are free of the Covid-19 virus after getting their results from the swab test carried out on them by medical personnel two weeks ago.

Team manager Henry Soimpon (pic) who disclosed this on Thursday said the squad are set to return to field training after receiving the news from the health authority that all of them have tested negative.

“Thankfully everyone was tested negative from the virus. The results had also been handed over to the Malaysia Football League  (MFL) and now we  are just waiting for the ‘green light’ to start training in the open again.

“To be able to return to the football pitch for training in the immediate future is definitely good news for us as we need to be fully prepared for the restart of the Super League competition.

“Obviously, there are huge differences in training at home and on the pitch, so I expect the players’ fitness levels will improve once we are able to start field training,” he said.

He is also confident that the team’s head coach Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto will be able to prepare the players well with the appropriate programme.

“I believe coach Kurniawan together with the other coaching staff will  work out a plan to improve the team’s performance even though the training situation is going to be different with the SOP (standard operating procedures),” he added.

After three months of training at home due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), all the Malaysian League (M League) teams are finally allowed to train outdoor following the announcement by Ministry of Youth and Sports two weeks ago.

However, they had to adhere to four SOP rules as determined by the Malaysian Football League (MFL).  

Among the stipulated procedures include undergoing the swab test and the results will be submitted to the MFL after being certified by the team doctor.

Apart from that, each team also needs to appoint a coordinator to monitor the teams so that they are in compliance with the SOP as well as requiring to name the training centres that  must be registered via the notification.miti.gov.my link.
