EbeneMagazine – AU – «  The season would have been done  »: Bachar Houli on the AFL COVID near-accident


Richmond defender Bachar Houli has revealed how close AFL competition is this season

In July, Houli’s mother Yamana was in critical condition in hospital after contracting COVID-19

Houli said it affected between 50 and 70% of his relatives, except his own family

Don’t know how many people you can invite? Unsure of the best way to protect yourself in stores? Send us a question and we’ll try to answer it

« We are a close-knit family and for some reason when mum and this got sick I hadn’t seen them for over two weeks, » he said.

« The consequences for us as AFL players – you can imagine if I had it or if my wife had it, passed it on to me, passed it on to my players

Yamana has now recovered, but at the time it prompted Houli, a devout Muslim, to post a video on social media in which he made a passionate appeal to the Islamic community to get tested

« It was definitely an important message in that it led a lot of people to realize that this thing is real and that there is something they need to be aware of and be careful of. « said Houli

AFL players have had to make sacrifices to keep the season alive, but it has been particularly trying for Houli and his family

When Victorian clubs headed to Queensland hubs in July, he stayed in Melbourne to be with his wife, Rouba, as she gave birth to their third child, Mohamed

« This is definitely a year that I will remember for the rest of my life 2020, obviously my son was born and my mom got sick at that time and she didn’t have the chance to see

« She still hasn’t seen him and she’s looking forward to the day when she meets him and obviously gives him a hug »

« There were mixed emotions to be completely honest, sometimes I scratched my head and thought, what am I doing here, is it really worth it? » He asked

« But when you think bigger you realize what the people of Victoria have gone through and gone through, it’s probably not a bad place to be and allow our son to grow up in a better environment from a perspective. meteorological « 

« It allowed our little family to come together while being at home, I am very busy and take care of the community, programs and football etc. whereas here it was training and then training directly to the family, it was very precious, « he said

Richmond teammate Kane Lambert says Houli’s return has given the team a boost as the team advance to their third grand final in four years

« He’s like the father figure, he’s always so calm and collected, he’s really balanced, he never lets himself be impressed, so he’s just someone to take comfort in, » Lambert said.

Houli said after the year he’s had, Saturday night’s result won’t decide if 2020 is a success

« This is a question we will always remember and will not be defined by the last moment of this match, whether you win or lose »

« It was a huge sacrifice on the part of both teams and the whole competition and I think everyone is a winner on Saturday night, the whole competition not just Geelong and Richmond It was a huge sacrifice «
