MASERU — Former LCS coach Katiso Mojakhomo has ruled out a return to Masheshena following his indefinite suspension two months ago over poor results.
Mojakhomo — who took charge of LCS two years ago — has since joined B-Division outfit Thetsane United and told the Sunday Express he has not heard from LCS since his suspension late October.
During his spell in charge, Mojakhomo presided over the most successful period in LCS’s history, guiding the team to the 2007/08 league title, 2008 MGC Supa 8 and inaugural Vodacom Soccer Spectacular trophy last year.
Mojakhomo also oversaw LCS’s CAF Champions League campaign last year, where the side beat South African Premier League outfit Platinum Stars 1-0 before eventually losing 1-4 on aggregate.
He was assistant coach when LCS won the 2006/07 championship but after an indifferent start to the season, Mojakhomo’s impressive record counted for nought with management.
Meanwhile, the LCS executive is set to meet on Wednesday over Mojakhomo’s future but the former Masheshena fullback says he is done with the club.
“When you are accused of things you didn’t do, it’s never nice. None of the things I was accused of have been proven,” Mojakhomo said.
“To tell the truth, I’m tired of LCS. It is something that I have discussed with my family. I’ve done a lot for the team and every time I am repaid the same way.”
Mojakhomo’s latest spell had been his fourth at the club.
But on Thursday, LCS public relations officer Moseme Moseme said there was still a possibility Mojakhomo could return.
“We are going to discuss the matter with the club president on Wednesday next week. The decision will be made by the president; if he says Mojakhomo should return, then he would come back,” Moseme said.
LCS started the season with a lacklustre 0-1 home loss to Likhopo, with LCS assistant coach Moshe Lephoto — who left with Mojakhomo — questioning some of the senior players’ attitude.
With the team’s waning fortunes, players complained about Mojakhomo’s training methods.
Moseme also revealed the main reason for Mojakhomo’s suspension was because of disagreements with LCS team manager Martin Molaoa and his “unsatisfactory” behaviour, which included storming out of a meeting with the club’s executive.
