Jamal Bhuiyan, the Bangladesh football captain, has advised the youth to return to the childhood days with the football alone while keeping social distance to make up the Covid-19 pandemic days a little bit funny.

The Saif Sporting Club skipper and midfielder is currently spending time with family in Denmark.

He joined a live session at South Asian Football Federation’s facebook page under the title ‘Saff During Covid-19 & Beyond.’

After an introductory discussion with regards to how the south Asian football fraternity is dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, it was asked how the youth should be spending time right now.

“My advice to the youth is – Just have the ball and be kid again. We play football because it is fun. I never thought about money when I was young, I loved football, playing on the street, that puts me where I’m. Just have ball and you can do lot of things with it,” said Jamal.

He added, “We are facing difficult time at the moment. We can’t play football and do our job. I’m currently living with family in Denmark. It’s different than Bangladesh. Bangladesh people are different. They don’t like or listen too much of the restrictions.

“I saw during Friday prayers, stuffs like that, people are gathering, which is not good. They don’t have patience at the moment for coronavirus. Hope it will be better next month.”

Former Indian captain and defender Sandesh Jhingan, Nepal captain Kiron Kumar Limbu, Bhutan captain Karma Shedrup Tshering, Maldives captain Akram Abdul Ghanee and Pakistan goalkeeper Yusuf Butt also joined the session.

The participants discussed the Covid-19 situation in their respective country and also talked about how to keep fitness with physical exercises at home to capitalize on the days of quarantine.

Jamal joined after two and a half minutes but disconnected soon before returning from the seventh minute onwards till the end.

The live session, hosted by Ghulam Sumdany Don, the chief inspirational officer at Don Sumdany Facilitation and Consultancy, lasted for an hour and 14 minutes.
