The Indian Super League is one such tournament in the recent past that has been under the scanner for constant postponement of the league games owing to severe complications with a combination of COVID-19 related problems, bio-bubble worries, and non-availability of the required number of players to successfully conduct the matches. This has left fans, viewers and spectators frustrated and many have gone on to suggest that the league was taking advantage of the COVID-19 related guidelines to completely postpone the scheduled games.
Now speaking of this, the players involved within the ISL game have gone on to share their opinion on the bio-bubble environment being no longer secure.
“Players are losing interest and desire to continue to compete” mentioned Goa captain Edu Bedia in a social media post. They continue to play to collect their contracts without any ambition. This is what has been achieved with this year’s rules. Whether you like it or not, all the people inside the bio-bubble just want March to come and the league to end, whatever the outcome”, he added.
Kerala Blasters’ defender Enes Sipovic went on to share his opinion by adding,” It’s not easy, specially when you are closed in your rooms. You think only how not to test positive (for COVID-19), specially, when your wife, kids and, in my cases, I need to take extra care of my wife because we are expecting a baby”.
“No one can understand how hard it is in a bubble without being inside,” said Chennaiyin’s Polish striker Lukasz Gikuewicz. “We don’t feel normal…we have to bring it together to finish the season to the end.”
