Lesotho international, LitÅ¡eoana Maloro has joined Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in the South African Hollywoodbets Womenâ€™s Super League.
Maloro signed a one-year contract with an option to renew with the Pretoria side.
The lanky striker had been in the books of Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies since 2019 having signed for the club on a three-year contract.
â€œI have just signed a contract with TUT for the just started season and Iâ€™ve been here since January,â€ Maloro told Newday Sports this week.
The 26-year-old indicated that the move is official with only the work permit standing in her way which could delay her participation into the topflight womenâ€™s league action.
â€œEverything is settled except for my work permit which is standing in the way currently and I will probably miss a few games
â€œI am waiting for the South African police clearance and then I can continue with the process, so once that has been settled, I am good to feature in the teamâ€™s games.
â€œI am hopeful it will be approved soon because I was told it takes about eight weeks and it has been a while since I applied,â€ Maloro said.
The womenâ€™s league 2022/23 season kicked-off this past weekend however, TUT is yet to set their paces in the new season.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic ladies captain said the main reason she agreed on the move is that as part of the contract TUT will be assisting her with furthering her studies.
TUT is one of the best rated universities in Africa (25) and in the world, ranking among the best especially in the sports and science studies.
Maloro will be pursuing a qualification in Sports science while playing for the team.
â€œThe one thing I am excited about with this move is that I will not only be focusing on playing football but as it is known TUT is one of the best institutions so I will be furthering my studies there,â€ she said. Last season TUT Ladies finished as runners up to the champions, Mamelodi Sundowns ladies which also boasts Lesotho international Boitumelo Rabale.
