Khutlang, who joined Leopards after impressing them while playing for Likuena at the 2018 COSAFA Cup that was held in Polokwane, is yet to feature for the club this season having not been registered with the South African Premier League as the Limpopo side had exceeded its foreign quota.
However, the Limpopo outfit announced in the South African media earlier this week that Khutlang will be registered to play again following the departure of Madagascar international Andriamirado Andrianarimanana, which opened a foreign slot for the Lesotho international.
“I’m delighted to be back in the picture at the club. It was not easy at all for me being out frozen in the cold,” Khutlang admitted.
“I was weighing all my options including getting a team in the First Division in order to get another chance to play again. We tried to force some transfer, but in the end things failed to materialise because of financial issues.”
Khutlang’s change of fortunes at the Leopards might do with the return of Dylan Kerr as the club head coach having replaced Belgian-Patrick Aussems, who seemed to have no interest in utilising the services of the Lesotho-born player.
Kerr has also added former Likuena skipper Lehlohonolo Seema to his technical staff as his assistant coach after the latter was recently sacked as the head coach of Chippa United.
The former Likhopo and Lioli attacking midfielder was confident that something would have worked out for him in the January transfer window if his frustrations had continued at Lidoda Duvha.
