Rulani advised the footballers to include and manipulate all their exercises with their ball this he believe will advance in their career a their reconnect back to the field after the epidemic subsides.
“My advice to the football players is as much as the physical components of your daily routines with regards to your training programmes are important, let us not forget that we are football players. A pianist doesn’t run around the piano before he sits and plays the piano. So, include and manipulate all your exercises with the ball. Try to run, sprint to jog by using the ball, because at the end of the day your relationship with the ball is the most important thing,” he said on Twitter
