Duncan Lechesa is one of the coaches assessing players at Free State Stars.
It was revealed by the Siya crew that there has been an influx of players at Stars, as Kinnah Phiri and his technical team have been assessing the players to add to the squad for the 2014/15 season.
Setjhaba Mmuso, Menzi Dlamini and Charly Moussono-Moussono are some of the players on trial at the Bethlehem outfit.
News reaching the Siya crew is that Lechesa is one of the coaches watching the proceedings from the bench of Stars, as the players are being taken through their paces again today (Wednesday).
Lechesa finished the 2013/14 season coaching Sivutsa Stars. He started the season with Polokwane City and had a stint at FC Cape Town before leaving for Mpumalanga in March.
A source close to Lechesa confirmed to the Siya crew that the former Ea Lla Koto player is already with the Free State outfit.
“News flies hey. What you are asking me is the truth. He is on his way there. He is going there. Duncan told me that he is going to the Free State. The trials have started at Free State Stars,” said the source.
Lechesa made a name for himself as a professional footballer while playing for Stars. His coaching career started in 2010 at Carara Kicks, the Bethlehem NFD side that served a feeder team to Ea Lla Koto at the time.
