‘Six-to-six’ back at LDF

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

LDF have re-ap­pointed Motheo ‘Six-to-six’ Mo­hapi as head-coach for the 2015/16 Vo­da­com Premier league sea­son.

The team’s pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer, Donny Ntakha, on Tues­day con­firmed the de­vel­op­ments to the Le­sotho Times, adding Male­fet­sane Pheko, who led the side to fifth-place last sea­son, had been de­moted to as­sis­tant coach.

“It’s true that Mo­hapi is back as the new head­coach and Pheko would be his as­sis­tant,” Ntakha said.

“the point is, Mo­hapi was away due to work com­mit­ments hence he ended up coach­ing at likhopo for a short spell. How­ever, he has since re­turned and will be with us go­ing for­ward.”

Mean­while, LCS have beefed up their squad with the sign­ing of at­tack­ing mid­fielder Makara Ntait­sane from likhopo.

LCS sec­re­tary gen­eral lehlo­honolo Mat­losa con­firmed the ar­rival of Ntait­sane, who joins from Likhopo.

“We have fi­nalised ev­ery­thing with Likhopo and he is now our player,” Mat­losa said.

“The coach iden­ti­fied a void in our at­tack­ing po­si­tions and wanted some­one who can play as a sec­ond striker and Makara was that miss­ing link in our squad. “I think we have now com­pleted our busi­ness as far as sign­ing new play­ers is con­cerned.”

Ntait­sane, who came through the likhopo de­vel­op­ment ranks, was the club’s top goal-scorer last sea­son and also re­cently part of the na­tional team train­ing squad although he failed to make the cut in the end.

likhopo, in the mean­time, have also made changes to their tech­ni­cal team by rop­ing in club leg­end Sha­lane le­hohla as head-coach fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of Motheo Mo­hapi and Wright Mo­foka.

Le­hohla, a former mid­fielder for Likuena, also worked at LCS where he was as­sis­tant coach to Katiso Mo­jakhopo.

the Red army are also ne­go­ti­at­ing with li­oli over the pos­si­ble trans­fer of Sale­bone lekhooa to the de­fend­ing league cham­pi­ons, ac­cord­ing to likhopo team man­ager Qa­mako Ma­hao.

“We have a new coach in le­hohla, who has just started work­ing with us and will be in charge of the team in the new sea­son,” Ma­hao said.

“as for lekhooa, we are still in ne­go­ti­a­tions with li­oli be­cause he has shown in­ter­est in join­ing them.”
