Georgia based attacker Francisco Madinga has poured out his heart after growing frustrated with staying alone due to the extended break caused by coronavirus pandemic.
The Georgian National League (Erovnuli Liga) remains suspended just like other European Leagues.
The Dila Gori FC Malawian player, speaking in a telephone interview yesterday, said he has been uncomfortable staying idle at his apartment.
The former Be Forward Wanderers midfielder said he was still learning Georgian and Dila’s culture as such the break caused by Covid-19 has delayed his progress.
“I came here to play football but I am now idle. I just stay at home and language is also a barrier. I am unable to communicate with my colleagues. A month and some weeks have gone now. Had it been that I am playing football it could have been a different story,” Madinga said.
The left footed player wished he had returned home.
“We were told that we will remain at home until the football suspension is lifted,” he said.
Madinga, who has registered a goal in two appearances for the club, felt he could have been settled by now if the season was still in progress.
“I just hope we get over this problem. Much as I am working out at home but the real workout happens at the ground,” Madinga said.
Flames Team Manager Clement Kafwafwa has urged Madinga to visit his coach for counselling and home training program schedule.
Kafwafwa said Madinga must know that signing for a European club was a sign that he was old enough to survive on his own as a player.
“I will make an effort to talk with him. As it is he must contact his coach and seek advice. He must not think about returning home. He must develop thick skin. In Europe it is easy to set up gym equipment and train at home,” Kafwafwa who had a stint in Denmark said.
Wanderers sold Madinga to Dila for about K10 million.
