Thekiso seeks assurance at Chiefs

Rumours link him to former club Rollers

Onalethata Thekiso is jittery over Patrick Kaunda’s arrival at the Kgatleng giants. Reports indicate that Thekiso is seeking assurance over the role he will enjoy in the Mochudi Centre Chiefs set up next season amid fears that Kaunda’s arrival will further limit his play time.


The striker, who does not want to talk about the issue publicly, has been part of Chiefs ever since his fall out with Township Rollers, but the arrival of Bonolo Fraizer suddenly made him second choice behind Mara Moloi.


The imminent departure of Frazier under freedom of contract could have been the silver lining for Thekiso next term. But the management’s desire to sign Kaunda on loan from Platinum Stars will leave the former Zebras player considering his options.


Township Rollers is reportedly interested in Thekiso, but it remains to be seen how much Chiefs would want to recoup, given the endured costs when recruiting him from the Gaborone West based side.


The team’s instinct would be to retain his services given he contributed several goals last term from few  league starts, including critical winners against BDF XI and Letlapeng in the second round, but it has previously made it clear it would  not retain players who are unsettled and desire to leave.


“OT” as he is affectionately known scored 14 goals in 26 Premier league matches in one season during his stint at Rollers.


Rollers finished 3rd last term and hope to add two or three eye-catching, established talents to their squad ahead of the new season – they want to speak to other clubs in search of quality strikers to mount a serious league challenge.


OT, all the while will seek to ascertain what role has been earmarked for him next season with the Premier League champions before determining his next move, but is keen to gain regular game-time to ensure he plays a part this season – his football career it seems is slowly drawing to an end.


Whether chiefs will hold on to the robust striker remains to be seen, but the team is also expected to tilt their concentration to other two players who might slip from their grip. Magosi are reported to be have given Galabgwe Moyana a new contract to consider but are likely to face a mammoth task as Rollers has rekindled their love on the player.  


Another thorn on the club’s side is Dirang Moloi’s idleness. His deal with a China club is facing doubt and some misgivings and the club might capitalise on that opportunity.  When reached for comment, the club spokesperson Clifford Mogomotsi had said informed this reporter that he was walking into a meeting and would “let you know as soon as possible”.
