Setsile dumps TS Galaxy, returns to Galaxy

Player of The Season, Players’ Player of the Year and Top Leading Goalscorer Thero Setsile will be tracing his steps back to Jwaneng Galaxy

Last seasons’ biggest winner; Player of The Season, Players’ Player of the Year and Top Leading Goalscorer Thero Setsile will be tracing his steps back to Jwaneng Galaxy after a failed six months spell at South Africa’s National First Division(NFD).

In an interview with WeekendSport, Jwaneng Galaxy Public Relation Officer Tankiso Morake confirmed that they have started talks with the player this month and believe Setsile will sign with them. He said they are having talks with TS Galaxy so that they can buy out Setsile from his two year contract. Morake said they are hopeful to sign Setsile before the end of the January transfer window pending clearance of International Transfer Certification with TS Galaxy.

"He is currently training with us, he started since the beginning of December. Negotiations are ongoing and we are hopeful everything will be concluded soon," he said in an interview. Mahachi, as Setsile is affectionately known, became one of Botswana’s export to South African lower division. TS Galaxy paid Debswana Mine outfit Jwaneng Galaxy P150 000 for Mahachi’s services. Before he left to ply his trade at South Africa the left footed winger had one year remaining in his contract with the Jwaneng Galaxy.

Setsile had a successful 2018/19 and besides his accolades he helped Jwaneng Galaxy clinch the Mascom Top 8 cup as he became both top leading goalscorer and player of the tournament. This attracted the South African club’s interest on the Maun-born winger who hit the net 18 times on his last season’s BTC Premiership campaign.Mahachi went on to help TS Galaxy by scoring an important away goal in a CAF Confederation Cup clash with Seychelles side St Louis United. Setsile played two CAF Confederation cup games appearing as a substitute, playing a total of 66 minutes of football at the South African club.

However Setsile’s promising career with TS Galaxy did not go as expected and it was also riddled by rumors of the player being frustrated at the club. Reports coming from South Africa is that Setsile and some of his Botswana counterparts who went to South Africa were not happy with their salaries. Former Jwaneng Galaxy goalkeeper Ezekiel Morake and Township Rollers defender Mosha Gaolalwe are also reported to be coming back to Botswana after a failed spell with TS Galaxy. It is reported that the two have amicably agreed with TS Galaxy owner Tim Sukazi to have their contract terminated by the club.

Morake told this publication that before they sold the duo of Setsile and Ezekiel Morake to TS Galaxy, they had a clause which conditioned that whenever the players wanted to return back to Botswana, they should consider Jwaneng Galaxy as their first option or automatically sign with their former club.
