Fothoane faces lengthy ban

Fothoane faces lengthy ban

MASERU – Bantu midfielder Lehlohonolo Fothoane could face a lengthy suspension if found guilty of violating the premier league’s code of conduct.
The Lesotho international grabbed the headlines for all the wrong reasons after Sunday’s Independence Cup final defeat to Lioli when he stamped on ‘Tse Nala’ midfielder Stephane Heyong after the final whistle.

Fothoane escaped a red card because the incident happened after the final whistle but he could still find himself in hot water.
Speaking to thepost on Tuesday, Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) communications and marketing manager, Moeketsi Ramakatsa, said the league will act if it feels Fothoane has violated FIFA’s laws.

“We are having a meeting (on Wednesday evening) so that we decide on what to do next pertaining to that incident,” Ramakatsa said.
“If the laws were violated then actions will follow according to the laws that we will be looking at.”
Fothoane’s actions were a sad end to Sunday’s final.

After the game Fothoane ran a mile to Heyong, who was on the turf as the final whistle went off, and stamped on the Gabonese player, causing an altercation between the two sets of players.
Lioli were not pleased with Fothoane’s behavior and they say they are waiting on what the league decides before they take action.
Bantu head coach James Madidilane also called Fothoane’s actions unacceptable and said the club will deal with the player internally.
