Samuel Tetteh

Ghanaian forward Samuel Tetteh is eager to return to the pitch after nearly two months without football due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Football and other major sporting events were grounded to a halt due to the novel virus which has claimed over 100,000 lives worldwide.

Tetteh, 23, who plays for LASK Linz in the Austrian league is frustrated by the repetitive routine indoors and cannot wait to play football despite training programmes given to him and his teammates.

“I can’t wait to get back to playing football again,” the Ghana international told Joy Sports.

“…there’s a training programme given by the team to every player to train at home so when I wake up, it is just for me to train at home; just to train alone or maybe to talk to my family and friends.” He added.

The former WAFA star also revealed that they join training sessions via video call at times.

“Sometimes we train via video call with the team and sometimes we train alone.

“I either train outside or inside and probably eat and talk to my friends or play some games; this is what I have been doing.”

Samuel Tetteh is one of many Ghanaian players in Europe who have to resort to training alone to keep in shape awaiting the end of Covid-19 to resume to active football.
