Former Royal Eagles coach Morena Ramoreboli is set to rejoin Lesotho’s Lioli and Goal has reliably learned that the experienced manager is set to be unveiled on Wednesday.

The coach made his name when he led Maluti FET College in the Nedbank Cup to a 4-1 win over Orlando Pirates at Charles Mopeli Stadium in 2013.

Ramoreboli was appointed as Phunya Sele Sele’s Head of Development in 2016 and also served as Serame Letsoaka’s assistant coach in the senior team.
