Likhopo’s slow, painful death
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.
