Vasco Da Gama Aiming To Extend Botswana International Dirang Moloi's Contract

Vasco Da Gama are reportedly lining up a new deal to keep Botswana international Dirang Moloi, because of interest from neighbours Ajax Cape Town.
The former Notwane and Mochudi Centre Chief's star has been in fine form for Vasco since joining at the beginning of the season.

His coach, Carlos das Neves, confirms his desire to keep him at the club for another season.

"Dirang has done extremely well for us. We are impressed with the way he has performed though he has a groin injury at the moment. We would want to keep him at the club for next season, but we will only finalise everything at the end of the season when we know our League spot is secure," said Das Neves, according to

"For now, we need to concentrate on maintaining our Premiership status, I know it would seem like we are safe but this is football and anything can happen. So we need to maintain our focus and ensure we keep our place."

Das Neves is aware that his star midfielder may have attracted interest from other clubs following his fine form.

Ajax Cape Town are rumoured to be interested in the Zebras’ linkman.

Moloi says Vasco are talking with his manager and he was scheduled to meet him on Wednesday to discuss contractual issues.

"They are talking to my manager, but I have not spoken to him because he was out of the country. He only returned Tuesday," he said. He sounded doubtful about his stay at the club.

Sources close to him revealed that he turned down a new deal proposed by the club. Moloi is out for a month owing to a groin injury that he picked up when his club played Maritzburg United in a League match recently.

"It's quite painful and the doctors have said I will be out of action for a month or so."
