|Majantja will have a new coach for the 2018/19 Econet Premier League season...|
The 29 year-old Malapane holds a CAF B License and will oversee the club’s pre-season which starts this week. He has signed a one year contract.
“I thank God for giving me this amazing opportunity to lead this club as head coach in the Lesotho Premier League,” Malapane is quoted as saying by the Mohale’s Hoek club.
Malapane will be tasked with building on last season’s commendable eighth place finish in what was Majantja’s first season back in the elite league since 2012.

Meanwhile, Majantja’s southern rivals Liphakoe are still looking for a coach after the surprise departure of Motolo Makepe two weeks ago.
Makepe, who took over as Liphakoe boss early into last season after Motebang Makhetha left the club, led the Quthing outfit to their most wins (eight) since their return to the Premiership in 2015. However, it wasn’t enough to secure a top eight finish as Liphakoe ended the 2017/18 in ninth place, two points behind Majantja.
Liphakoe communications and marketing manager Tau Sebatli said the club will have to act fast to find a replacement for Makepe.
“We are resuming training (this week),” Sebatli said. “We are looking to announce the new coach and his assistant soon since we are already preparing for next season. We will also announce our new signings soon.”
