Chiefs� Tshireletso included in Zebras squad


Zebras coach, Peter Butler has included Mochudi Centre Chiefs winger, Lemponye Tshireletso in the 28-man squad preparing to face Ethiopia on Independence Day.

Butler flew into a storm when he criticised the selection of Zebras midfielder, Lesego Galenamotlhale as the last season’s Player of the Season and Chiefs vowed not to release their players for national duty. However, the new Botswana Football Association (BFA) chief executive officer, Kitso Kemoeng was tasked with handling the matter.

“I never had any issues with Chiefs. They have always been called. He (Tshireletso) was sick previously. I am always happy to have Chiefs players in my squad as well as any other player who is playing well for his respective team,” Butler told Mmegi Sport yesterday.
