FRANCISTOWN: Jwaneng Galaxy have shot down speculation linking the club’s high-flying South African coach, Morena Ramoreboli with a return to his homeland for a role within Kaizer Chiefs' technical team.

Reports are that the coach’s representatives in South Africa, Brand Arc Group have submitted a formal proposal to Chiefs. Amakhosi, as Chiefs are known, are expected to undergo changes in their technical set up very soon, following the sacking of head coach Molefi Ntseki. Ntseki left with some members of his technical team. Chiefs do not have a substantive technical team after Calvin Johnson was brought in to lead the team on an interim basis. This week Galaxy spokesperson, Tankiso Morake, expressed optimism that Ramoreboli will not ditch the club any time soon. “He is very loyal to the club. He has a project at Galaxy. We sat down with him and he has assured us that he is not going anywhere,” Morake said. “He has indicated that when he wants to leave, he will timely and professionally notify the club. A lot of big clubs have been pursuing him, but he is very professional and respects his contract with Galaxy,” he added.

Ramoreboli has previously been linked with Gaborone United and Township Rollers, two of the biggest clubs in the country. Lately, there were amplified calls that he should be considered for the Zebras job following the dismissal of Mogomotsi 'Teenage' Mpote. It was also reported that some in the BFA executive wanted him to take over the national team. The association later settled for Frenchman, Didier Gomes da Rosa. “It is very gratifying to hear people speaking so positively about Ramoreboli. It is, however, not surprising because he is doing a good job. In football, when you are doing well there will always be such plaudits,”

It is very wrong to do that. There is also a possibility that one may wrongfully take the life of a person in the process, unless it is a justifiable case of self-defence. Recently, in the city of Francistown, some locals found...
