MATLAMA and Bantu have allegedly launched a raid of Kick4Life players.
Matlama have set their sights on Relebohile Thulo and Tanki Seoli. Leaders, Bantu, on the other hand, have already given Kick4Life goalkeeper, Motlatsi Sebapala a pre-contract, a source told the Lesotho Times this week.
The trio’s contracts with the Old Europa outfit are ending this season.
“The three players’ contracts are ending this season and both Matlama and Bantu have shown interest in their services,” the source said.
“Matlama intends to give both Thulo and Seoli two-year contracts while Sebapala has already signed a pre-contract with Bantu,” said the source.
Sebapala, who is the former national under-17 goalkeeper, will be groomed for future take over from Thabiso Lichaba and Thabo Sedisa, the source said.
“Sebapala signed a pre-contract three months ago.”
However, Kick4Life information officer Reitumetsi Tlopo said they are yet to receive any communication from the two clubs regarding their interest in the players.
“We have not received any formal request for players from any team. As for contracts, we have not renewed the contracts for Kamohelo Makateng, Reatile Ntene, Mbele Ntsoaole and Tsepang Bulane. They have all been notified about this,” Tlopo said.
He however, could not be drawn into commenting on the trio’s contracts.
“For now, I can’t comment on that, maybe at a later stage.”
Matlama manager Limpho Tshepe also watered down the rumours saying they are yet to engage any players.
“As far as I know, we haven’t started any negotiations with any players. Our technical team is yet to submit the list of players whom they want in the team,” Tshepe said.
Bantu president technical Panyane Phiri also played down the rumour.
“We only have three goalkeepers for now and their coach Liteboho Mokhesi, who is a player coach. We haven’t talked to any player who is still contracted to any team,” Phiri said.
