Jane confident of returning to Asia
LESOTHO international, Tšotleho Jane, says he has no interest in playing for any local club at the moment as he still hopes to go back to Asia.
The left footed attacking midfielder, whose one-year contract with Cambodian outfit Phnom Penh Crown ended this month, has been training with Bantu.
Jane has been in the country since last month when he joined Likuena in the preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Cape Verde which they drew at home early this month.
In a recent interview with the Sunday Express, Jane said that he is still training with Bantu but his heart is not in Lesotho.
“I am just trying to enjoy because it is off season for me,” Jane said adding: “Right now I am training with Bantu since I am here at home”.
“However, I am still planning to go back overseas and see if I can get another team. I am just waiting for the transfer window to open.”
He further said the defending league champions have shown interest in signing him but said he explained to the club that he still intends to go back overseas.
“They (Bantu) were interested in signing me but I told them that I want to go back overseas. I am planning to go back to Asia as soon as the October transfer window opens.”
Asked whether he was not worried he may lose his place in the national team if he fails to secure a club soon, the player said the decision was not his to make.
“Whether or not I lose my place in the national team is a decision for the coaches. However, I believe I will be playing top-flight football soon,” he said.
Jane said for now he is eyeing only overseas moves but emphasised that he does not have anything against local clubs.
“I just like playing outside more. I like watching games when I am here at home and playing with the guys but playing here at home is not my target at the moment,” Jane said.
