Likhopo’s slow, painful death

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

Tefo JUST when it seemed it could not get any worse for premier league soc­cer out­fit Likhopo, the for­mer cham­pi­ons slumped to their ninth de­feat in eleven games over the week­end.

This time they were beaten 0-1 by fel­low strug­glers Rovers.

I hate to say I told you so, but I was one of those who sounded the alarm bells about the way the man­age­ment was run­ning the club ever since the death of founder and owner Bishop Mo­la­toli in Jan­uary 2014.

It is no ex­ag­ger­a­tion to say the en­tire foot­ball fra­ter­nity was as­tounded when the club de­cided to re­lease its long serv­ing stars like Bokang ‘Lefty’ Mothoana, Tefo ‘Chigo’ Maipato and Nyakhane Nyakhane.

These are play­ers who grew up at the club and were there dur­ing its best days. The late Mo­la­toli treated them like his own sons and I doubt he would have agreed with the de­ci­sion to send them away.

Bokang ‘Lefty’ Mothoana.

‘Chigo’ Maipato.
