Premier League’s Setete Phuthego, who long served as the Acting General Manager of the beMOBILE Premier League, has now been confirmed to be holding the post.
Setete has been acting in the post since the beginning of last season. Premier League chairman, Mokganedi Molefe, told Sunday Standard that they were impressed by what Setete had been doing. He said they have not received complaints from clubs regarding Setete’s performance as the acting general manager.
On his part, Phuthego told journalists that his role is to take care of Premier League strategies and eventually turn the league professional.
“I am content that we will deliver and turn professional by 2012,” said Phuthego.
The Premier League has also, in turn, appointed new members of the disciplinary committee.
Carlos Joao Salbany chairs the committee with Yvonne Chilume, Luckson Likokoto, Busang Manewe and Thabo Ntshinogang, who has worked at BFA before as members of the committee.
The new disciplinary committee will serve for the next two years. Molefe said a dispute in the premier league should be dealt with in at least two week, unlike previously when cases would drag on for a very long time.
Molefhe further said that, “We hope that the new committee will go an extra mile in ensuring speedy resolution of conflicts and avoid spoiling the excitement of the league games,” he said. Molefe described the committee members as people with integrity and a good knowledge of local soccer.
However, he said the committee consists of people with sincerity and good knowledge of football.
