Sundawana resigned to losing Koloti

Maseru – Sundawana general manager TloaeloMapena says they are open to negotiate with Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) over the services of hit-man Roboama Koloti.

Mapena’s comments come a week after Koloti’s name appeared on a list of new LMPS recruits.

Sundawana have been at pains to keep the Lesotho Under-20 starlet who struck 13 league goals last season and inspired the club to a maiden fourth place finish in the Vodacom Premier League.

‘Tse Bo Yellow’ slapped a M2 million price tag on Koloti in June and vowed not to release the player to any local team.

However, earlier this month Koloti went for a job test at the police service and he appears headed down the same route as Nkau Lerotholi and Basia Makepe who left Matlama and Lioli respectively after securing work at LMPS.

Mapena said the Butha-Buthe club is aware of the developments surrounding their prized asset but insisted Koloti remains their player.

“We have heard his name being called on radio but he is still our player until his training (for the police service) starts,” Mapena toldthepost on Tuesday.

“I have talked to him and he did admit that he wrote the test (at LMPS) and that his name is out.”

Koloti enjoyed a breakthrough 2015/16 campaign and scooped the players’ player and young player of the season awards at the end of the campaign.

Mapena said Koloti will continue to play for Sundawana until he starts his training at LMPS whose date remains unclear. He said the LMPS would have to negotiate a deal with Sundawana if Koloti is to play for their football club.

“He is still our player, even if he is at the LMPS,” Mapena said. “If they want him they will follow proper procedures and we are open to discussing his transfer. But until then he remains our player and he will continue playing for us.”

Koloti was linked with Bantu, Lioli and LMPS almost as soon as last season ended and the speculation appears to have affected the player and club.

Sundawana are winless in their three opening Vodacom Premier League games. They are 11th with just a point and have struggled to adapt to life under new coach SidwellMothea.

The Butha-Buthe side’s next game is on Saturday when they host Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) at MaputsoeDiFA Stadium.

Sundawana are also slated to meet league champions Lioli in the Independence Cup semi-finals on October 22.
