Ghana winger Samuel Owusu has shared some of the things he has been doing during the period of quarantine at his base in Saudi Arabia.

The winger moved to Saudi Arabia last summer to join Al Fayha and has already established himself as one of the stars of the club, having scored five times in 20 games.

But the Saudi top-flight league is on hold due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus.

Owusu, who has been indoors for weeks now believes it is a good decision by the government of the Middle Eastern country to take the necessary steps to curb the pandemic.

"For me as a player I think this is the best time because the government is responsible for the pandemic coronavirus and the best they can do is to quarantine everybody to stay home," he told Al Fayha in a Twitter video.

"As I was saying, as a player if you don't get the opportunity to training outside, at least you can get some cool training in the house, some stomach training and that's what I am doing and it's good," he added.

Despite admitting it has been difficult being indoors for the past few days, the pacy winger is making the most out of it.

"For this moment of quarantine, it's very difficult. For me as a person I don't like being indoors, I like to go outside to get some fresh air. It's really hard but I make sure I try my best to train," he continued.

He ended by urging everybody to follow the safety precautions serious as the world fight this horrible pandemic.
