Football players Karim Essikal and Samy Bourard of FC Eindhoven are facing a challenging month: they are both observing Ramadan while they continue training at the club.
Many Muslims fast for Ramadan. While the football season is over for FC Eindhoven, Essikal and Bourard are still training five days a week while they fast.
However, they seem to be handling it well. “I still have enough nutrients in my body”, said Bourard.
“When I’m playing football, I don’t think about eating or drinking. I’m only concered with the game”, Essikal said.
