Nkhasi eyes another title
THE 2020/21 Women Super League (WSL) campaign was supposed to get underway on Sunday but games are suspended for two weeks at the back of Covid-19.
Ahead of this year’s race, LDF coach Lehloenya Nkhasi said he is eying his fifth title.
LDF are the reigning champions and is looking forward to an improved given that he had to do without the majority of his experienced players. The bulk of the players joined the army and were undergoing their training for most of the 2019/20 season.
“We want to do better than the other years and we intend to do that by collecting more points and scoring as many goals as possible,” Nkhasi said.
“We want to play better football. I want to improve our players, both as a unit and individually.
“All the players who were at the army training are back and they are competing with the rest for spots in the team.”
He said it was imperative to aim high and come up with a competitive side which can also benefit the national teams.
“Most of our players struggle at national level. It starts here at club level, so we must improve them for the betterment of the national team.”
Nkhasi said his team was ready to challenge for honours as they have been training since last month to ensure that the players are in good shape.
In their first league game, LDF will host Limkokwing University Ladies.
As much as LDF have been dominating the league for the past four seasons, Nkhasi said they have respect for every team. Therefore, they will not take Limkokwing lightly.
“Limkokwing is a good team with some quality players. We respect every opponent. They are a new team this season, I have watched them a few times recently and they are playing good football. They are a well-structured side.”
The other league starting fixtures will see Thaba-Tseka Ladies play Stoko FC while Kick4Life Ladies will lock horns with Basetsana.
Rovers Ladies will play Sky Battalion while Berea Ladies will clash with Mafeteng Sistas.
WSL secretary general Nkopane Rajoale said new dates and venues will be announced once the suspension is lifted.
