MASERU — Skipper Moli Lesesa’s future at Joy remains in doubt.
The Likuena midfielder was in inspirational form last season helping the unfashionable Sebothoane side to an eighth-place finish in the league.
But Joy may have to prepare for life after Lesesa in the upcoming season with the player likely to leave for greener pastures.
The Joy captain has attracted interest from several clubs and is considering the offers.
“I might go to another club, I’m not sure,” Lesesa told the Sunday Express yesterday.
“I’m considering some offers but I don’t want to comment any further at the moment.”
Lesesa was on the wanted list of newly-promoted Nyenye Rovers but LCS are now understood to be leading the chase for the 25-year old lynchpin.
Speaking to the Sunday Express yesterday Joy team manager Tšepang Molapo confirmed LCS had indicated their interest for the player.
“LCS contacted our coach (Molefe Frantsi) and he gave them my contacts but LCS have not yet been in touch with me,” Molapo said.
“If LCS want Moli then they have to come to us and we can negotiate but at the moment Moli is still our player and we expect him to start the season with Joy,” Molapo said.
Molapo conceded that Joy would not stand in the way if Moli wanted to join another club.
“LCS or the other state teams are the only ones we would let Moli join because we know they are offering something for the player’s future. Moli is a symbol of this club and it won’t be easy to let him go. But we know that he is at a stage in his life when he has to look at his future,” Molapo said.
However LCS public relations officer Moseme Moseme denied any interest in Lesesa saying: “We are not looking at the player. Not at all.”
If LCS does swoop for Lesesa then it could be part of a blockbuster double swoop.
LCS have also emerged as favourites to capture the coveted signing of Matlama defender Nkau Lerotholi.
The Likuena midfielder has been the subject of constant speculation over the transfer window with league champions heavily linked with the 18-year old player.
But once again LCS’s ability to offer job security might be the decisive factor.
