MASERU — Lesotho international Bushy Moletsane has sealed a loan deal with yet another Botswana side.
He has joined Premier League side Botswana Police XI Sporting Club on a one-year loan deal after spending last season at Flamengo Santos.
Moletsane, 26, last season helped Flamengo Santos finish second in Botswana’s top-flight league after joining them on a loan deal in which his local club Lioli pocketed M5 000.
Yesterday Lioli announced the playmaker had joined Botswana Police XI on a year-long loan deal but did not disclose the amount involved.
Sources at the Teyateyaneng side however said the club was believed to have received M10 000 for Moletsane’s services.
“Lioli FC announces that Bushy Moletsane will join Botswana Police XI Sporting Club for a period of one year starting the beginning of the 2010/11 season,” the club announced in a statement.
“This comes after the two clubs reached an agreement on the future of the player.
“Negotiations were prolonged by Mr Moletsane’s high demand in Botswana.”
Meanwhile, Lioli have suspended midfielder Sello ‘Muso indefinitely from the club over ill-discipline.
‘Muso was suspended for allegedly drinking alcohol before a pre-season match against Mohale’s Hoek LMPS in Teyateyaneng last Saturday.
“You are as a result of the above charge suspended from participation in the business of Lioli FC until this case has been concluded,” Lioli team manager Mokhole Lekhoesa said in a letter to ‘Muso.
“You will be advised of further details such as date and venue of the case, chairman of the hearing etc in due course.
“Failure to adhere to this instruction will result in you facing further charges.”
The suspension comes just two weeks after ‘Muso was in the news for reporting for pre-season training nearly a month late.
Lioli have however vowed to stamp out ill-discipline as they prepare to reclaim the Premier League title they surrendered to Matlama last season.
The club has also indefinitely suspended young midfielder Teboho Nkabane for alleged drunken behaviour before last Saturday’s pre-season friendly match.
Mohapi Ntobo meanwhile has been given a final warning after he “incited and encouraged other players to resist and show hostility towards our coach (Halemakale Mahlaha)” during the weekend game.
