Majantja FC star attacker and one of A-Division top goal scorers Moriana Moriana will not be short of suitors this transfer window, with a number of VPL clubs reported to have approached Majantja for the player’s services.

The 20 year old netted a whopping 20 goals for Majantja in the South A-Division stream, leading them to VPL promotion and Nedbank Champ of Champs triumph in the process.

Leading the race to acquiring the explosive winger-cum-strikers’ signature is Bantu FC who are believed to have already tabled the offer for the players’ camp to review. In the mix is also LDF who have inquired about the player for the January transfer period.

It comes as no surprise for Bantu to be pushing for Moriana after Bantu Coach James Madidilane made it clear that the club will be in the market for a creative winger or a number 10 in this transfer period.

These are qualities that the Mohales’ Hoek born speedy winger possesses explicitly. Moriana is no stranger to the VPL, having turned for Liphakoe FC in the 2022/23 season.

Moriana confirms to Informative Newspaper that there are VPL clubs looking to sign him. These include the Mafeteng based giants – wherein Bantu FC are the most advanced in the said negotiations.

However he maintains that he is still weighing his options and is in no rush to make a decision.

“I am open to join any club that tables a satisfying offer. All I am looking for as a player is to make a living off of my talent and be able to put bread on the table for my family,” he says.

He goes on to state that his target this season was to “win a trophy or two” for his club, which he did.

He was very happy to have achieved his goals and thus confesses that he will not have any regrets should he leave the club in the new season.

On the contrary, Majantja Coach Bafokeng Mohapi denies the links stating that no club has approached Majantja for the services of the player in question.

However, he emphasizes that they will not stand in a players’ way if a team comes with a better offer.

“The core of our team is relatively young players and it is our aim to produce many of them. So if Bantu, for example, offers our player more than what we can offer him we cannot stand in a players’ way,” he says.

Speaking on the new challenge of competing in the premier league next season, Mohapi says he is ready for the challenge.

He however admits that the second tier, “it is going to be a big and different challenge” to what they are used to.

He then emphasizes that he will be looking to recruit players that they can get, to mix their current young squad with experience.

“We hope to reinforce our squad here and there of course, but even if we don’t get any players I think my players can stand the heat in the premier division. It will just depend on our preparation and planning, and if we get things right, I have no doubts. We will compete.” he concludes.
