Lerotholi says he is not planning to ditch Matlama

MASERU — Matlama captain Nkau Lerotholi has rubbished rumours that he could be leaving Tse Putsoa for Lerotholi or any other club.
Matlama ended the just ended season in turmoil and things haven’t improved in the off-season.
The Maseru Glamour Boys are still without a coach and are struggling to attract new signings to the club to give the team impetus towards a title push for the coming season.
It has prompted teams to hover like vultures around the Tse Putsoa nest and Lerotholi is amongst a deluge of players who are rumoured to be nearing the exit door.
According to reports, Lerotholi could be heading to relegated Lerotholi Polytechnic.
Although Lihale were relegated, the source said the Matlama captain was set to enrol at Lerotholi Polytechnic which would automatically mean he would be bound to play for the Fokothi side.
According to the source, Lerotholi and two other players are ready to jump the Matlama ship.
“Their papers (to move to Lerotholi) are being finalised,” the source said.
However, speaking to the Sunday Express on Thursday Lerotholi vehemently denied the rumours.
“It’s not true, I’m still in the Tse Mponga (Matlama) camp,” Lerotholi said.
Lerotholi was a braveheart at the heart of the Matlama defence and captained the team to the League and Cup double in the 2009/10 season.
Lerotholi, who is a free agent, admitted that there was interest from several teams for his signature.
“There are many teams (that are interested in me),” Lerotholi said.
Lerotholi added that Matlama wanted to have a coach for the new season. Matlama have been without a coach since the departure of Motlalepula Majoro in April who was only at the helm for a short space of time.
Majoro was Tse Putsoa’s fourth coach in the 2010/11 season.
Tse Putsoa finished the season under the tutelage of four senior players, Matsoai Shokhoe, Lehlohonolo Mokhele, Sello Seholoholo and Lerotholi.
“We want a coach to take charge of the team. I think in two weeks time we are going to start training,” Lerotholi said.
