Aug. 8, 2020 2 min read

MASERU - Lesotho’s international Jane ‘Sunny’ Tšotleho is confident of making a return abroad to continue with his football career once the international borders open for traveling.

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder has been back in the country since his contract with American second tier side - Louisville City expired last December.

Tšotleho, who has 11 caps for Likuena, has played for several lower division clubs in the United States of America and also had a short spell in Cambodia with Phnom Penh Crown in 2018.

"I was on the verge of going back to USA or Asia before the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, but due to the travel restrictions, I wasn't able to leave the country," Tšotleho told this publication.

He added: "I'm still figuring out what's next right now, but there are a few things in play. I was waiting for football to be back and now that it's back, there will be a few things in store for me I believe."

The attacking midfielder, who won his first cap for Likuena in 2014 in a 2-0 win over Liberia during the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, revealed that he is also open to making a move to the Econet Premier League should any of the local clubs meet his salary demands. "Well, I wouldn't say yes and I wouldn't say no. It all depends on who is willing to meet my salary demands, but no team has approached me up to so far," he also said.

He added: "I think the COVID-19 pandemic has hurt everyone in terms of football really. It hurts me because I miss football, but personally it also helped after unexpected events that took place in my life in December 2019. "I think this was the break I needed to reflect on my life and to make sure that I'm mentally, emotionally and physically ready to get back on the field again. Obviously, I wish it didn't have to take something as bad as COVID-19 to happen for me to take this break, but it's the positive thing I am going to take out of it."
