Pascalinah Kabi MASERU — Lioli recalled their playmaker Bushy Moletsane from Botswana premiership side Flamengo after he went two months without pay, the Sunday Express can reveal. The 28-year-old Moletsane started training with the Teyateyaneng giants last week. Moletsane joined Flamingo Santos last season but things went sour towards the end of last year. Flamingo Santos is currently experiencing serious financial problems. “It is true that Moletsane is now officially a Lioli player after his Botswana side experienced some financial challenges,” Moeketsi Pitso, Lioli communications and marketing manager, told the Sunday Express on Friday. “He was not paid for two months and when he was eventually paid in the third month, our Botswana counterparts informed us that their financial crisis was still persisting,” Pitso said. He said Tse Nala then decided to recall Moletsane because they also needed his services as they try to get the team out of the relegation zone. Lioli are currently lying ninth on the Vodacom premier league table with 13 points, just six above the relegation zone. “Besides the financial problems in Botswana, we desperately needed his services here at home,” Pitso said. Moletsane started training with Lioli last week and will re-join Flamingo Santos next season if their financial situation improves. Lioli president Lebohang Thotanyana said Moletsane was re-signed by Lioli last month. “We have signed Moletsane and he is now officially a Lioli player, the transfer was completed today (January 27) and we are delighted to have him back at the club,” Thotanyana said on Lioli’s official website. “Lioli needed him back, he is a top-class player and he will add a lot to the team. “We are happy to have concluded the deal and Lioli can look forward to seeing Moletsane in our colours again,” said Thotanyana. The Teyateyaneng giants have only won two of their 10 matches so far this season.
