Q and A with Onismor “Bash” Bhasera

SuperSport United Football Club website managed to conduct Q and A with their experienced left-back Onismor Bhasera regarding the COVID19 and how much he misses his teammates at Megawatt Park.

What else do you do apart from football related activities you are doing on a daily basis?

I help my kids with school work and my daughter with her ballerina moves and exercises and also do my online studies on a course I’m doing. 

Schools are sending some work for parents to help their children, are you participating to help your son with homework and other activities?

My kid’s school has been sending a lot of school work so I have practically become a primary teacher.

Apart from school work, what else are you helping in the household? Can you cook? What dish are you good at?

I make food for my family.  I’m a very good cook. I have learnt a lot of recipes from my partner and she has also learnt from me.  My best dish is fried rice and chicken stew and veggies. 

Can you clean the house? Or maybe do some washing for very body in the house?

I clean up the house but mostly the garage where my puppies are spending the day under these cold days. 

Who is doing the garden at your place? Are you able to do the Garden just to get your surrounding tidy?

I have always been hands-on on my garden even before lockdown. I water and cut the lawn as well as trim the flowers.

Does your son play football? Does he also helps you in a way to execute some of the exercises during the session with regards to working on the ball?

My son loves football. He knows most of my teammates as well as players in Europe clubs as young as he is. He calls his boots ‘The Gabuza shoes’’. I’m not sure where that comes from – he does most of the exercises I do, so that also helps me to execute some of the exercises.

How much do you miss your teammates and everybody else in the team?

First few days I was happy on spending time with my family and also analyzing my previous games but lately I miss being on the field of play with my colleagues, especially on our winning streak and our camping. I miss everyone who makes our team even the ones behind the scenes. 

What is your message to the football supporters and your fans who miss live football as far as COVID19 is concerned?

To all football supporters and our fans, we miss not just entertaining you but also your presence in the stadiums, the sounds of your excitement or otherwise. However the situation we are under needs all of us to adhere to the rules and regulations for our own safety. Please keep the social distancing and washing of hands. The mask is now our new look.
