Kenyan midfielder Mohammed Katana has said that it has been “very scary” to have to play through coronavirus in Belarus, where he plays his club football.
While football has begun to return in some of the bigger global leagues – first in South Korea, and now Germany’s Bundesliga – in a handful of countries, it never stopped.
One such was Belarus, where the league continued behind closed doors despite rising numbers of coronavirus cases in the country.
Katana, who joined Smolevich-STI in the Belarus top tier at the beginning of the season, said that players who have been out of action for months should not envy him and his fellow players in the Belarus league. (Text, photo by BBC)
