Inactive Zebras worries Tshosane
Stanley Tshosane, Head Coach of Botswana
Tshosane told MTNFootball.com that players like key midfielder Dirang Moloi has seen little action since returning to Botswana to join Notwane after leaving demoted South African PSL side Vasco da Gama.
"I'm worried about some of the players who are not active at club level, not just Dirang. It's not good, especially as we prepare for the AFCON finals," Tshosane said.
Dirang is reportedly still awaiting his clearance from Vasco and has so far sat out Notwane's opening nine games into the new Botswana league season and there are concerns he might only play when the January transfer window opens.
Tshosane said he is also concerned about key striker Jerome Ramatlhakwane whose highly publicized move to English League Two club Bradford City in England fell through.
Ramatlhakwane was inspirational in the Zebra's fairy tale qualifying campaign and finished as Botswana and Group K top scorer with five goals.
He is currently back at PSL club Santos but was not registered for the 2011/2012 season and is not even training with the Cape Town based team.
However, Tshosane said he is happy that veteran midfielder Dipsy Selolwane is finding some playing time at SuperSport United.
Botswana finished top of Group K after accruing an unassailable lead of 17 points from eight games played with five wins, two draws and losing just one match.
