Lefa registers Bantu for Champions League


Mikia Kalati

Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) general secretary, Mokhosi Mohapi, has confirmed  Bantu’s registration for next year’s Confederation of African Football (Caf) Champions League.

According to Mohapi, the association had already completed the first stage of registration for the Mafeteng-based 2013/14 Vodacom Premier League champions with Caf ahead of the draw scheduled for next week.

“We completed Stage One of the registration with Caf’s competitions department, and are now working on Stage Two, where we will be submitting their club licence and then wait for approval before registering the players,” Mohapi said.

Mohapi noted the importance of completing the registration as early as possible to avoid the last-minute rush, which characterised some previous processes.

“It is always important to register on time and we have been working together with Bantu to make sure the club is ready for the competition,” said Mohapi, adding Bantu would begin the tournament in the preliminary stage next February.

Bantu Communications and Marketing Manager, Bokang Phasumane, told the Lesotho Times this week that these are exciting times for everyone at the club, which would be making its maiden appearance in the lucrative competition whose winner pockets M10 million.

“We are looking forward to the Champions League; it is a big competition that features the best teams on the continent,” Phasumane said.

“I can tell you that we are not just excited to participate, but also busy working on bringing a few more faces into the team to reinforce our squad before the tournament begins.

“We recently managed to bring in national team utility player, Sepiriti Malefane, from Likhopo and are working on getting three more players during the January transfer window,” he said.

According to Phasumane, Bantu would want to be the first local club to go beyond the preliminary stage of the tournament, hence the reinforcements.
