Three of the four foreign players of Bashundhara Kings are in Dhaka and one left the city after the league was called off on March 15. All the three players—Daniel Colindres, Nicolas Delmonte, and Akhtam Nazarov—are living in separate flats in Dhaka under the strict supervision of the club authorities. Ahmed Shaaek, marketing and media manager of Bashundhara Kings, confirmed this yesterday (Tuesday). He also gave details about the players' daily routine to maintain fitness.

The media manager also got the Costa Rican world cupper, Colindres, to answer queries of reporters online. Talking to The Independent yesterday, Shaaek said: “We called off our camp right after the league was postponed. All local players left the camp. We managed accommodation for three foreign players in separate flats. They have been staying in their rooms all day, following directions from the government, after the coronavirus outbreak.”

“Owing to the coronavirus outbreak, we are very careful about our players, especially the foreign players who are in Dhaka. Daniel Colindres and Nicolas Delmonte of Argentina and Akhtam Nazarov of Tajikistan are in Dhaka. Baktyir Duishobekov of Kyrgyzstan left Dhaka almost two weeks back. Nicolas Delmonte is here with his wife and the other two are alone,” he added.

Bashundhara Kings, now the most powerful team to watch in Bangladesh domestic football, have been flying high since the last season after winning the Bangladesh Premier League Football. Bashundhara drew the attention of all by recruiting a fresh world cup booter of Costa Rica, Daniel Colindres, in his debut season and also became champions outshining all the traditional powerhouses.

Bashundhara added another feather to their cap with the inclusion of former Argentine world cupper Hernan Barcos, who sparkled in his debut match in Bangladesh, scoring four off their 5-1 win against TC Sports Club in the AFC Cup match.   

Daniel Colindres, who thinks he would be safer in Costa Rica than here, was not interested in talking to the media directly. But he agreed to convey his answers through Shaaek.  On the situation in Costa Rica, Daniel said: “The situation is complicated because the number of people infected is growing. My family is fine, thank God. Sure, it will be safer for me to be in my country.”

About how he is spending time at home, Daniel said: “I am fine. I have a daily routine after getting up. Have breakfast, exercise, take a bath, have lunch, read a little, have coffee in the afternoon, watch TV for a while, talk to my family, have dinner, and go to bed to sleep.”

Daniel, who has already spent a couple of seasons in Bangladesh, said about his experience: “Professionally, it seems to me that I have met expectations. We have achieved great things and will fight to put Bashundhara Kings in the international arena. Other than that, I have enjoyed my experience in Bangladesh.”

Asked how does he maintain fitness, Daniel said: “I follow the suggestions of the physical trainer. He sends me messages daily about my workout. In the house, I have a space where I can exercise.” The Bashundhara Kings actually look to be struggling in the league. Halfway through the first leg of the league, the champions are sixth on the points table. Asked about this, Daniel said: “We are fighting for the top position. But we lost the last two games. We are three points from the first place. We must improve some details to be on top again.”
