Chiefs have loaned the youngster to Baroka FC, as reported. Following his promotion from Chiefs’ MultiChoice Diski Challenge side prior to the start of the 2016/17 season, Letlotlo was unfortunate to have suffered a knee injury which resulted in surgery and a lengthy spell on the sidelines while recovering. 

The injury resulted in the player not contributing much to the team under Steve Komphela, who was Chiefs’ head coach at the time.

A decision has been taken from Amakhosi to send the 22-year-old on loan for the upcoming season, following his recovery from injury.

In an exclusive interview in edition 1083 of Soccer Laduma, the young forward has explained how his move to Bakgaga came about, indicating that Chiefs’ football manager Bobby Motaung was behind it. 

“This decision came from the management, with Bobby (Motaung). I didn’t go to them to ask for a loan move, but I think it is a good move and it's a chance for me to play. When they told me they were going to loan me out, I didn’t get angry about it. I took it in a positive way because I was ready for anything that was going to come. Whether I was going to stay at Chiefs or leave, I was okay with anything because all I want to do is play. I even told my dad that I want to play even if I had to be loaned out to another team. But I didn’t tell anyone else, so I guess the management were also feeling the same way with regards to me getting more game-time,” said Letlotlo. 

Also covered in Letlotlo’s interview is his much-talked-about supposed swap deal with Baroka’s Talent Chawapiwa, working under Komphela at Chiefs, as well as how he coped during his long-term injury, among other topics.
