News coming from Botswana suggest that former South African national team assistant coach Serame Letsoaka has been appointed as the new technical director for the Botswana national director.
The former Free State Stars coach had been linked with the job in the neighbouring country for a few month, but at the time, Letsoaka rubbished the reports.
However, reports in the Southern African country suggest that the former Bloemfontein Celtic manager was spotted in Gaborone attending an interview with the BFA.
Although Goal managed to get hold him after the story broke, Letsoaka refuted the claims, saying he was offered a job in the Premier Soccer League as a coach.
However, reports emerged this week that the Botswana FA has roped in the former Golden Arrows mentor and that he resumed his duties from June 01, 2018.
Although the Zebras are in Limpopo to participate in the 2019 Cosafa Cup tournament, it is unclear whether or not Letsoaka has been available to guide coach Major David Bright.
Interestingly, Bright will lead his men against Letsoaka’s countrymen in the Plate final on Friday afternoon as they hope to bag a medal for their efforts.
The Senekal-born former QwaQwa Stars (Free State Stars) player has been jobless since he left Ea Lla Koto in June 2017, but his experience in international football having served as Gordon Igesund’s assistant at Bafana Bafana between 2012 and 2014.
Moreover, KillerPass website in Botswana reports that the BFA has appointed Letsoaka on a three-year contract.
