Lesotho Football Association (LEFA) kicked out former international player and licensed coach Teele Ntšonyana out of instructors’ course conducted at their headquarters on Monday.
Ntšonyana exclusively told News4u Sport that he was already inside the hall when he was called by LEFA Head of Education Unit Lehlohonolo Thotanyana that he was instructed not to allow him to participate for the course by his bosses.
“At that moment I asked him who had given him such a directive, he told me he could not say.” Ntšonyana said.
“While I was outside the hall, Khiba Mohoanyane, [LEFA’s first Vice-President] arrived and cracked a joke about how I am fighting them,” Ntšonyana said.
“I wanted to meet any member of executive committee of LeFA to seek clarity why I was not allowed to continue with the course. I was finally informed that by Thotanyana that Mohoanyane said it was the decision of the National Executive,” he said.
The frustrated Ntšonyana was clueless why LEFA could treat him that way.
LEFA Media officer Mikia Kalati said they will issue a statement regarding the expulsion of Ntsonyana
Lefa release statement regarding expulsion of Teele Ntšonyana
Dear Colleagues in the Media,
The Lesotho Football Association has removed the name of Mr.Teele Ntsonyana from its list of participants in the Coaching Instructor Workshop that started at Bambatha Ts’ita Sports Arena this Monday.
This move follows a series of allegations received from District Football Associations which are LeFA’s affiliates. These allegations involve acts of misconduct which have to be investigated and which if proved would amount to bringing the Association into disrepute.
The letters of complaints against Mr Ntsonyana have also been sent to the President of Coaches Association for appropriate investigation and action.
In these circumstances,LeFA has come to a considered opinion that it would not be in the best interest of football and good administration to allow Mr. Ntsonyana continue being trained by LeFA at its cost until such time that his name shall have been cleared. He will be served with relevant letters inviting him to make representations in the coming few days.
