Mokhehle set for return

Mokhehle set for return

MASERU – Lioli’s talented goalkeeper, Liteboho Mokhehle, is close to returning to training ahead of the new Econet Premier League season.
The Lesotho international has been sidelined since suffering a horrific leg break in January during a league match against Matlama.
Mokhehle, who is yet to start training, told thepost yesterday he is going for a check-up this week and will know when he can return to action.

However, Mokhehle — who has always maintained he would return for the start of the 2018/19 season — said he is feeling “good and free of any pain”.
“I am going for a check-up on Thursday I will hear from the doctor if I am ready to start training,” Mokhehle said.

“For now I have been doing nothing at all and I haven’t been training, but I feel good, I feel no pain at all. But when I return all depends on what the doctor says,” he explained.
Even if he is cleared for action by doctors, it is unlikely Mokhehle will play any part in Lioli’s campaign at least until October. Mokhehle last played a competitive match on January 14 and, with no training under his belt, he is rusty and lacks match fitness.

Even so, the news of Mokhehle’s imminent return will be welcomed by Lioli fans who have been behind their goalkeeper since his injury.
It will also be a boost to ‘Tse Nala’ as they seek to end Bantu’s two-year dominance of the Econet Premier League.
For five months, Lioli’s number one keeper was forced to watch his team struggled to match Bantu from the sidelines.

He described the experience as “the worst” and said not being able to help his team was “a nightmare”.
The start of the new season is not far away.
Lioli begin their Econet Premiership campaign on September 15 in Teyateyaneng with a tough match against an ambitious Kick4Life side.
