Kick4Life to fire Mojakhomo
FOLLOWING a string of poor results, Kick4Life may soon part ways with coach Katiso Mojakhomo, the Lesotho Times has learnt.
Mojakhomo, who took over from Bob Mafoso at the beginning of this season, has won four, drawn four and lost seven of 15 matches including an LNIG Top8 quarterfinal against Bantu.
In 14 league matches, Kick4Life has only scored 11 and conceded a staggering 22.
The Old Europa outfit is 10th in the 14-team league table with 16 points.
Under Mojakhomo, Kick4Life has conceded 15 goals in five matches (a 5-0 to Bantu on 12 January, a 3-1 loss to LDF, a 2-1 win over Swallows and a 2-0 loss to Matlama).
A fortnight ago the side was humiliated 4-1 by Bantu in the first leg quarterfinal of the LNIG Top8 and that seems to have been the last straw with the management said to have asked him to step aside.
The former LCS, Lioli and Bantu mentor was conspicuously absent from the technical area during his side’s 3-1 loss to Bantu at Setsoto Stadium on Saturday. Assistant coach Paul Westren was in charge on the day.
Sources say the team is yet to sit down and finalise Mojakhomo’s exit although Westren is now the interim coach.
“The club wants him gone but they are yet to sit down and negotiate with him because they are obliged to pay him since he still has a running contract,” a source said.
Kick4Life director of football Chris Bullock confirmed to this newspaper that indeed Westren would continue leading the team while they try to resolve the matter.
“Coach Katiso has been given some time off and in this period, Paul (Westren) will take over the team until further notice. Unfortunately, I am only allowed to comment thus far regarding the matter but if there are changes, we will make an announcement,” Bullock said.
On his part, Mojakhomo said he was away on work commitments.
“I was away on work commitments and I will be away for some time. I am still the coach of that team,” Mojakhomo said.
