Lefa to send top referee for refresher course

MASERU — Top Lesotho referee and Caf instructor Teele Ntšonyane will next month attend a one-week refresher course in Cameroon.

Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) technical director, Seephephe Matete, told the Lesotho Times on Tuesday that they were sending Ntšonyane to the course because Lesotho needs to keep up with new trends in football.

“We want to have a pool of instructors in our football and Caf helps us train them,” Matete said.

He said this is Ntšonyane’s third Caf instructor training course.

He added the programme had helped develop Lesotho’s football over the years.

“This is his third refresher course and the last time he attended such a course was last year in Morocco.”

Ntšonyane was one of the instructors during Lefa’s first Caf C Licence course and since then he has instructed during three courses.

Ntšonyane is expected to help develop football in the country by imparting his knowledge to local coaches.

“Developing football in our country is very important as we need to stay abreast with all that is happening in the football fraternity world-wide.

“Ntate Teele’s appointment is helping us achieve that because he is able to train our coaches who are at the end expected to pass their knowledge to the players,” Matete said.

Ntšonyane’s course in Cameroon is fully financed by Caf.
