Senong who took over from Moses Maliehe says the road has not been easy for him as a foreign coach because of the different perspective and approach he brings.
He said although he encountered several challenges in the first month of his contract, things are however normalizing now and there is hope for success.
Commenting on the LeFA website, the former South African national under-20 team coach said: “I am extremely grateful and humbled to have been with LeFA and Lesotho Football for 12 months now. It is a good milestone for me and I hope it can last longer.”
He added: “The first six months were extremely tough to adapt and function as I never had a chance to study the Lesotho Premier League. It was not easy for the players to accept me in the dressing room because I am a foreign coach and I was bringing different ideas, but football is universal and it's not played in a vacuum.”
He said they had to find common tactical agreements on the field and common behavioural agreements in the dressing room to help them be a better team.
That he said worked out well because he is not a dictator as he values the opinions of players, the staff and everyone around him.
The Pimville born mentor who also worked under Coaches Shakes Mashaba and Stuart Baxter with Bafana Bafana, said the congestion of international matches after his appointment made life more difficult for him as he had to play back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia.
