In an interview with Maseru Metro this week, Matlama Communication and Marketing Manager (CMM), Tankiso Moletsane said he is not in a position to confirm the departure of Nkulu. But what the CMM could say is that negotiations concerning the renewal of his contract were still ongoing between the player and management of the team.
“I am not sure whether I can confirm that the player is leaving the team. What I can tell you is that the management team is still holding talks with the player regarding the renewal of his contract. Matlama still values Nkulu a lot and he is needed for sure by our new coach.
“The only thing is that both parties have to understand each other and agree on the terms of the contract. We have dealt with a similar situation to this one of Nkulu before, and I trust that the team management will finalise this one without any difficulty,” Moletsane said.
The CMM further said he applauds the management of the team for the success on the renewal of contracts of the two Ghanaians ‑ Michael Mureku and Partrick Nyanko.
There was a rumour doing the rounds that both defenders were on the edge of jumping ship after their contracts came to an end at the end of last season, 2017/2018.
“Matlama is a big football brand and I want to tell you that so many good and bad things do happen to big clubs like this one. However, problems come and pass. I want to congratulate the management for their success in making sure that Mureku and Nyanko sign new contracts.”
