Tšotleho to re­main in US

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

Europe. What hap­pened in Bos­nia is that the team re­ally wanted to sign me, but the owner went bank­rupt and ev­ery­thing fell apart.

“The coaches at Mostar said they were im­pressed with me from day one and promised to come back for me if their fi­nances im­prove.”

Tšotleho, who made his na­tional team de­but in June last year against Liberia, is train­ing with Li­oli to main­tain his match-fit­ness while he awaits his US visa.

“I’m very happy to be mov­ing to a big­ger team, but my dream, like I said, is to play in Europe. I be­lieve this is pos­si­ble be­cause I am only 24, so time is still on my side.”

‘Sunny’, as the mid­fielder is pop­u­larly called at Wilm­ing­ton, also said he was happy to be home, but ex­pressed doubt he would play for any lo­cal side.

“I re­ally don’t know if I will play for any lo­cal team at some point, but it is al­ways good to be home with fam­ily and friends,” he said. “If my visa is not is­sued be­fore Christ­mas, then that will be the first time since 2004 that I get to spend Christ­mas in Le­sotho.

“It is also good that I have been train­ing with Li­oli and the na­tional team as it gives the new coach (Moses Maliehe), a chance to as­sess me be­cause I would re­ally be happy to play for my coun­try again,” he said.

Tšotleho has not been part of the na­tional team since play­ing two games at the re­gional Cosafa tour­na­ment held in South africa early this year in which Le­sotho crashed out in the group stage.
