Former Mochudi Centre Chiefs chairperson, Raymond Tsheko has been tipped to replace under fire Botswana Premier League (BPL) chief executive officer, Thabo Ntshinogang.

It is only a matter of time before Ntshinogang, who acknowledged that there was a plot to oust him, vacates office.

Tsheko, who was recently drafted into the BPL management committee, is expected to be installed as acting CEO.

"I am not aware (of moves to make me acting CEO), what I am aware of, is that I am in the BPL management committee. If they see capabilities in me, then it's up to them. I am available to serve football," Tsheko said today.

There is a looming shake-up at BPL, after board chairperson, Jagdish Shah left, and now the management committee is baying for Ntshinogang's blood.

Ntshinogang's major crime was re-scheduling a fixture between Miscellaneous and Township Rollers last season, where other clubs felt the Serowe side should have been docked points.

He is also accused of failing to protect BTC's interests in the Premiership sponsorship deal, which saw this season's amount trimmed from P13million to just P5million.

However, Ntshinogang has argued the football environment is too politicized, hence the sacrificial lambs.
