“It wasn’t a good experience being in quarantine because we were not supposed to be sleeping four in a room. I had to talk to the authorities before I could get a room with my teammate. Apart from that, we were taken good care of”.
The Khaitan forward is currently with his family and hoping to return to Kuwait when the season begins. The Kuwait League has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
