Kuenane on road to recovery

Mikia Kalati

MASERU — Lioli coach, Lehlohonolo Thotanyana, is confident star goalkeeper Mohau Kuenane is on the mend and could soon make full recovery from a knee injury sustained during the Tri-nations tournament held in Botswana in July.
The Tse Nala mentor told the Sunday Express that the fit-again Kuenane will boost his team’s chances of challenging for honours after an impressive start to the new league campaign.
Kuenane had over the past two years forced his way to command a place as the first choice goalkeeper for both Likuena and Lioli.
“There is no doubt that he was growing as one of the best goalkeepers in the country,” said Thotanyana.
“But we haven’t missed him a lot because our young goalkeeper Liteboho Mokhehle has done very well in his absence.”
He said his reserve goalkeeper has not disappointed since taking over the gloves at the start of the season.
Mokhehle’s impressive start to the new season won him a call-up to Likuena and earned him his first cap last Sunday in the 0-1 loss to Swaziland.
Also missing the services of the lanky goalkeeper is Likuena coach Leslie Notši.
“He had raised his hand and played a vital role in the national team,” Notši said.
The coach said although he is spoiled for choice in the goalkeeping department, Kuenane had become a top goalkeeper for both the national side and his club.
He said the goal-minder played a crucial role in the national team colours helping Likuena qualify for the group stages of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
“I believe he will be ready to play again before January and he will be considered for future matches once he is back,” said the coach.
Likuena play Group D leaders Zambia in a World Cup qualifier early next year.
