MASERU — Former Likuena coach, Leslie Notši, is dreaming of leading his new team United FC to the South African premier league.
Notši’s charges will be tested today as his side comes up against former premier league side Jomo Cosmos at Moruleng Stadium.
“I came here for a new challenge and the plan is to help the team succeed,” said Notši.
United is in eighth position in the South African first division league.
With just 10 points between them and log leaders Milano United, it looks like Notši’s mission may not be a very far-fetched one.
“The next six months will be very crucial for me and the team.
“This is a very competitive league and I believe that we have a good team made up of young players,” Notši said.
The 49-year-old coach said he wants his team to be consistent and win matches regularly hence he had a task to boost his players’ confidence in order to get the best out them.
Notsi attributed his success at the helm of the senior national team to the support he received from the country’s premier Tom Thabane and Sports Minister, Thesele Maseribane, and also hoped to win the hearts of his new team’s fans.
“He was very supportive from the day he took over as prime minister coming to our dressing room prior to our 2014 World Cup match against Sudan played at Setsoto stadium.
“I am hoping I can get the same support at United,” he said.
