Likuena get incentives for good showing


Aug. 5, 2019 2 min read

MASERU – Each of Likuena players along with the technical team and officials will pocket an incentive of M10 000 after the squad yesterday humbled Bafana Bafana 3-0 in the second leg of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier at the latter’s own backyard at the Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto.

The M290 000 pledge was made by the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) President King’s Counsel Salemane Phafane immediately after the match. According to KC Phafane, the LeFA Executive Committee decided to give each member of the team the said amount as a token of  appreciation for the hard work they did.  “We thank you for the love and support over the two games against South Africa,” he said in a media release from LeFA. 

The president also extended his vote of thanks to the government of Lesotho through Deputy Prime Minister Monyane Moleleki, the Minister of Gender and Youth, Sports and Recreation Dr Mahali Phamotse and other cabinet ministers, who travelled to Soweto to rally behind Likuena. He said through their support, Likuena were able to register an historic win over Bafana Bafana. KC Phafane alsoexpressed his gratitude to the supporters and the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) members who also made the trip to Soweto.

“We cannot forget our media partners, who also came in huge numbers,” he said. Likuena proceed to the second round of the CHAN qualifiers via a 6-2 aggregate after winning 3-2 in the first leg at Setsoto Stadium the previous weekend.  Likuena will now face Zimbabwe's Warriors in September after the Zimbabweans beat Mauritius 3-1 in the return leg in Bulawayo following a 4-0 lead in the first leg away.  If Likuena triumph over the Warriors, they will reach the CHAN finals to be held in Ethiopia next year.  Meanwhile, Leslie Notsi’s term as the team’s interim coach has ended and LeFA is yet to make a decision on who will take over from the ailing Moses Maliehe.
