Linare hammers Sefothafotha

MASERU – Linare hammered relegation threatened Sefothafotha 4-1 yesterday in a Vodacom Premier League tie to record their second victory in a row after claiming a sensational 2-0 victory over Matlama on Sunday, a game that cost Charles Manda his job at Matlama.

The win moves Linare into seventh place, above Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) who will be in action today against Lijabatho.
For Linare the back-to-back wins are a sharp turn of events after the club last week parted ways with several members of Tebogo Moloi’s technical team who were accused of sabotaging the South African coach and turning players against him.

After Rethabile Rasethuntša lost his Linare captaincy to Mabuti Potloane, rumours started swirling around about infighting in the team.
However, on Sunday, Moloi on Sunday said the club is building the team for the future and he revealed Rasethuntša is on his way to undergo trials in South Africa as soon as Premier Soccer League (PSL) season ends this weekend.

Moloi said Rasethuntša’s departure is already being prepared for and it has been confirmed he will be trialling at PSL outfit Moroka Swallows and it is up to the player to impress in order to earn a contract.
After Sunday’s game against Matlama, the former Orlando Pirates midfielder said Lesotho has talented players who should be playing outside the country. Moloi said everyone is putting in hard work at Linare because they realise through his connections in South African football they have a chance to follow in the footsteps of Likuena stars Motebang Sera and Tumelo Khutlang who are plying their trade across the border.

Until then, though, Rasethuntša will continue in the colours of Linare. Moloi said it is just not Linare players he will help, even players from other clubs who are impressing will get a chance. Moloi mentioned that two players from an unnamed local club will soon be leaving for trials in South Africa as well.

With yesterday’s victory, Linare now have 11 points from eight games. The Leribe side were supposed to play Bantu on Saturday but that game has since been postponed.
In another game yesterday, Manonyane played a 1-1 draw with CCX in Nyokosoba.
