|A better 2016/17 for Linare?|
Linare coach Motlatsi Shale says he is expecting a better Tse Tala team in the 2016/17 Vodacom Premier League season.
The Leribe giants endured a dismal 2015/16 campaign in which they were stuck in the relegation dogfight all season. Ultimately, Linare only secured survival in the penultimate game of the season.
Despite that poor campaign, expectations are always high in Hlotse and Shale, who took the reins in January, said his side will be improved this term.
Linare begin their season on August 27 at home against newly-promoted Sky Battalion and Shale said Tse Tala will be a better balanced outfit.
“We will try to have a mixture of young and experienced players to give balance to the squad,” he said. “I believe we have done well in the pre-season and will continue to work hard to have a competitive side come the start of the new season.”
Shale also urged Leribe businesses to support Linare.
“It is important for the whole Hlotse community to support us, especially the corporate sector through sponsorship,” he said.
