Rollers woos Dirang

Dirang to drop Don Bosco case

As the clock continues to tick towards the deadline transfer window deadline, defending Champions Township Rollers are reported to have retained firm interest on another Center Chiefs darling player, Dirang Moloi.

Mapalastina who will be entering a crucial stage in CAF competitions, are believed to be in an earnest mood to bolster their squad before they commence the second round of the season. With reports coming thick and fast that they are on the brink of losing their young talented playmaker Segolame Boy, the Gaborone West based giants are believed to be preparing themselves to settle for former Centre Chiefs player Dirang Moloi.

Buoyed by the unexpected signing of Tshepo Motlhabankwe from BMC FC, beating Magosi in the process, the club as led by multi millionaire, Jagdish Shah, would want to do everything in their power to convince Moloi to entertain second thoughts, abounding any standing wishes to rejoin his former club, Mochudi Centre Chiefs.  

Moloi, who at the beginning of the week maintained that he will be dropping his case against his former side, Angolan club Don Bosco following their refusal to release him from his 5 year contract, is expected to take an easy road amid Rollers pressure.

Until recently, the plan has been mooted that will see both Chiefs and Don Bosco coming to the negotiating table over a possible loan move to Magosi. Before Rollers firm interest became public, it was believed that the player’s move to the Kgatleng giants would be smooth sailing given the nature of the relationship between Don Bosco and Center Chiefs.

However, as things stand, it seems Rollers’ interest in the player is taking the issue to a cross roads. Those close to developments insist that the manner in which the Blues are recruiting is characterised by bad motives, particularly after losing Galabgwe Moyana to Chiefs. “It becomes a difficult situation for Dirang because he badly wants to play football, and should Rollers contact Don Bosco, the team might as well sit on it for as long as they want,” a source reveals.

However, Magosi are prepared to fight tooth and nail for the player they adored from time immemorial. Having lost Talk Talk, and their bitter rivalry ignited over Galabgwe Moyana’s case, Magosi are adamant that Rollers will not succeed in snatching the player from their grasp. Clifford Mogomotsi, the media liaison of Magosi said, “It is impossible for Rollers to sign Dirang Moloi unless they travel to DRC to negotiate with Don Bosco directly, but these are transfer speculations and will always be there.”

Rollers on the other hand remain cagey with details, but given the manner and the determination in which they snatched the ageing Motlhabankwe, Chiefs are believed to have every reason to fret over the ‘fat purse’ of their competitor.
