When is the recovery for? The question is on everyone’s lips among amateurs. After the end of the championships four months before their end last season following the first confinement, football “from below” is once again at a standstill since the announcement of the reconfinement. Competitions are unlikely to resume until early next year. A situation which disturbs all the actors.
“After being deprived of football during the first confinement, it is still the amateur clubs who drink, plague Damien Boudjemaa, the midfielder of Lusitanos Saint-Maur (National 2). For the moment, I do some jogging and core exercises but it’s not easy, especially at 35 years old (smile). All this unfortunately does not replace real training or matches. We know that we will have to benefit from a good preparation to be ready at the time of the recovery and to avoid injuries. “
If the Lusitanos Saint-Maur have not yet resumed training because players under federal contracts are in the minority in the workforce, the Sannois-Saint-Gratien Agreement (N2) has regained its ground last week. “It feels good to have touched up the ball but I’m worried,” said Lassana Konte, defender and captain who is also trained in foreign languages. We have to be mentally strong to resume competition at any time. We will then have to be strong physically because with the delay in the calendar, we will have to play every three days. We must adapt to this unprecedented situation. “
To avoid the risk of injury, physical trainers obviously have a major role during this period. This is the case for example at FC 93 Bobigny (N2), where the sessions are done remotely. “I have a workload monitoring software, and the players log on to their profile every day, indicating their feelings and noting their session,” explains Julien Lugier. They do one hour of session per day, rather outdoors and without a ball, must stay in training, keep the dynamic on the athletic side. Muscle prevention is also done to avoid injury. I have a more precise follow-up than during the first confinement. “
On the side of Poissy (N2), we are trying to organize as best as possible while the club is last in its championship and the new coach Walid Aïchour has not yet had the opportunity to physically meet his players. “It is for the moment out of the question to resume training for health reasons but also economic, considers its president Olivier Szewczuk. We do not want to put the players and their loved ones in danger while the Covid-19 is still raging fiercely in France. And if we resume training, how am I going to pay my players? All amateur clubs are in trouble. “The boss of the Yvelines club continues:” I don’t know when we will resume the championship but one thing is certain, I am summoned by the DNCG (National Management Control Department) on January 5, and I find that moved given the current situation. “
