Moloi to join Linare

Moloi to join Linare

MASERU-Econet Premier League outfit Linare are set to unveil their new head coach tomorrow.
The club’s spokesperson, Lebese Molati, confirmed the new coach has already signed a four-year deal with the Leribe giants and the media will have a chance to interact with him at Friday’s unveiling in Hlotse.

Molati refused to disclose the coach’s identity but it is rumoured to be former Orlando Pirates star Tebogo Moloi who has previously attended Linare games.

The former South African midfielder has been strongly linked with the top job at Linare and is expected to take the reins as ‘Tse Tala’ look to signal their intent for the 2020/21 Econet Premiership season.
Molati said giving the new coach a long-term contract means Linare are planning to build with the coach and support him.
However, he said Linare would not stand in the new man’s way if he receives a better offer from elsewhere later down the line.
“I can’t tell you who (the new coach) is, we are going to unveil him this week but I can tell you he has signed a four-year contract,” Molati told thepost.

“We are looking to have him (for the) long term but in football if he were to leave for greener pastures we will not stand in his way,” Molati added.
Although Linare are set to announce a coach this week, the new man will not be able to train his squad yet because sports are still prohibited in the country.

Nevertheless, Molati said it is important for Linare to secure a new coach so they can plan for the 2020/21 campaign.
Last season ‘Tse Tala’ had their best Econet Premier League finish in five years as they finished seventh and qualified for the LNIG Top 8.

The new man in charge will be tasked with building and improving Linare from that base and, if it is Moloi, he would follow in the footsteps of several South African coaches that have come to Lesotho to further their coaching careers.

The list includes James Madidilane who enjoyed three successful years at Bantu which were highlighted by back-to-back league titles in 2017 and 2018.

More recently, Morena Ramorebodi was at the helm at Lioli while Themba Tshabalala won the MGC Top 4 with Lifofane in February before leaving the club shortly afterwards.
