"Even if Royal AM was giving him the money, I would still suggest that he leaves because the club has signed Nurkovic and Gamildien for the purpose of using them.
"What if he doesn’t leave now and then ends up regretting when this chance doesn’t come again?" said Moloi.

Moloi believes that with the players the Thwili Thwala brought in, they have options, and therefore, Letsoalo’s place isn’t going to be guaranteed.

Moloi encouraged the striker to look at making his next club, the biggest move of his career, as he was getting older now and should decide whether he wanted to focus on game time and national calls up or on a big salary.

The South African recently reported that Letsoalo pleaded with the club to grant him a release.

Hugo Broos unimpressed with Royal AM's Victor Letsoalo despite Shauwn Mkhize's R20 million price tag on the player

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has found himself having to defend his squad selection for the AFCON qualifier against Morocco in June.

Broos announced his final 23-man squad yesterday, but many have criticised his decision to leave out key names.

One such player who hasn’t made the squad despite his goalscoring form this season is Royal AM’s Victor Letsoalo. Letsoalo has scored 15 goals so far this season and is the second-highest scorer in the DStv Premiership.

Royal AM CEO trolls Kaizer Chiefs, warns them that Victor Letsoalo is a Rolls Royce, not a Mazda 323

With transfer season coming to an end at the end of January, numerous Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs are trying to conduct last-minute deals, Sports Brief earlier reported.

Royal AM and Bafana striker Victor Letsoalo is one of those players who has often been scouted by numerous clubs and Kaizer Chiefs have always expressed interest in the player.

Royal AM CEO Sinky Mnisi issued a hilarious warning to Kaizer Chiefs though saying that they would need to pay the asking price for the player if they wanted to sign him. Mnisi described Letsoalo as a Rolls Royce that wouldn't be sold for the price of a Mazda 323.
