SINGAPORE - Teamwork has been a hallmark of the Lions under his watch, and now national football coach Tatsuma Yoshida is urging Singaporeans to adopt the same mentality in the fight against the coronavirus. With most of the world's sporting action grinding to a halt due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Japanese penned an open letter to Singapore fans and also recorded a video message on the Football Association of Singapore's Facebook page. In the video, released on Thursday (March 26), the day the Lions were scheduled to visit Palestine for a World Cup qualifier, the 45-year-old said:"Since I arrived in Singapore last year, I have felt very welcomed by all of you. I am very proud when I hear all of you supporting us at the stadium. "But now, I ask you to show your support for each other, especially our healthcare workers and all others on the frontline. They are our Lions. They are our heroes." He also believed that"we can overcome this challenge if we stay united". "We are on the same team," he explained, urging the fans to"follow the necessary measures and precautions, so we can be safe for our families and each other". In his open letter, which can be accessed via https://bit.ly/tatsumaletter, Yoshida backed Fifa and the Asian Football Confederation's decision to postpone the World Cup qualifiers. He added:"The number one priority is the health and daily lives of our families, our loved ones and the people around us. The situation is very serious but I feel that in Singapore, the government has handled it in a way that makes all of us feel that we will be okay." He thanked Singaporeans for the support they have shown him and urged them to practise patience, show kindness to one another, and"rise to the bigger challenge that is affecting us and the world". He is also looking forward to the day when athletes can train and play, and his team can represent Singapore on the pitch again. He wrote:"I look forward to the day when we will go onto the pitch again and represent all of you as the Lions. That will not only mean that football is back, but that the situation in the world is stable and safe again." Related Stories: Read more: The Straits Times
