Star midfielder kicked out of national team after bitter row over allowances
their allowances on Friday last week. LEFA is grateful to the Ministry of Gender and Youth,h, Sport and Recreation for having finally dissbursed the final installment of the allowwances,” read a statement released by Mohapi pi yesterday.
While Mohapi was not in a position to reeveal how much the former Likuena membersrs received for the Ethiopia, Algeria and twowo Zimbabwe matches, the Lesotho Times was as reliably informed each of the players wasas given M15 000.
Repeated attempts by the Lesotho Times to get Koetle’s side of the story were fruitless.
However, a member of the national team m who spoke to the Lesotho Times on conditionn of anonymity for fear of victimisation, saidd both parties were to blame for the way thingsgs ended of Tuesday.
“I think Koetle should have been humble inn voicing his dissatisfaction about the allowwances.
“However, LEFA should also come up withh clear policies that will make each of us underrstand this issue of allowances.
“How and when we are to be paid, and alsoo how much, should be communicated to us wellll in advance not when we are about to leave.
“This is not the first time this allowance isssue has rocked our camp and it will not bee the last until LEFA put their house in orderer and communicate the issue clearly and wellll in advance,” the player said.
“Again, if LEFA want good results, theyy should give us better allowances to keep us motivated.”
