Marai ap­pointed LCS coach

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

For­mer na­tional team de­fender, mpitsa marai, has been ap­pointed LCS coach.

The for­mer Bantu as­sis­tant coach takes over from Katiso mo­jakhomo who has re­tired from the game.

marai played for LCS and was also as­sis­tant coach at the club be­fore join­ing Bantu in a deputis­ing sim­i­lar role at the start of the 2014/15 premier­ship sea­son.

LCS public re­la­tions of­fi­cer, Kofa Ran­tai, would not con­firm Marai’s re­turn when con­tacted for com­ment, but could only say the club was in the process of mak­ing changes to their tech­ni­cal depart­ment.

“I’m not in a po­si­tion to go deep re­gard­ing the changes, but we will soon hold a press con­fer­ence to up­date our sup­port­ers on the lat­est changes at the club,” Kofa said.

“All I can say is that there won’t be a lot of changes to our tech­ni­cal team as well as play­ing staff.”

How­ever, an in­sider at the club told the Le­sotho Times that marai would be coach­ing the team next sea­son as he was familiar with the club.

“He has al­ready been given his let­ter of ap­point­ment and also al­ready no­ti­fied Bantu that he is leav­ing as he was as­sis­tant coach to mot­latsi Shale,” the source said.

mean­while, ac­cord­ing to the source, there had also been sug­ges­tions to bring back Mosholu ‘Shoes’ Mokhothu, who led the club to their last league ti­tle in 2012/13 .

mokhothu could how­ever, not be prized away from Li­oli where he has al­ready penned a new one-year deal.

LCS ended the 2014/15 sea­son in third po­si­tion on the 14-team pre­mier league ta­ble, and marai would have his work cut out to win the ti­tle.

Re­peated ef­forts to get Marai’s side of the story proved fruit­less.
