Former Brentford midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo has broken silence on his expectations on Premier Soccer League football after he signed a one year and half contract with Sekhukhune United.
The Free State born player was promoted to the SuperSport United first team at the age of 16 years. He then moved to Feyenoord and had a career in Holland that lasted until 2017. In 2017, Mokotjo moved to England in 2017 to play for Brentford FC where he played for three seasons before moving to the US to join FC Cincinnati, a team in the Major League Soccer (MLS).
The General as he is affectionately known, is aware of how different the PSL football is and he wants to adapt and adjust to it as quickly as possible. The Bafana Bafana midfielder is willing to share his experience with his teammates while he’s helping the team to strive for consistency.
“Honestly, I’m expecting a lot after being abroad for over a decade. I know the league is very unpredictable and so it’s my responsibility to adapt as quickly as possible and to adjust,” Mokotjo said.
“Whenever I need to adjust, I’m looking forward to the challenge and I know there are differences between where I played and the PSL. But at the end of the day football is football and it’s a challenge
“I think my role will be very broad in the team. It comes to motivating whoever is playing and of course sharing my experiences, not just verbally but also physically when we train and in games, be an example.
“I have a lot on my hands and obviously I’m at a club that’s striving for consistency and they are testing their limits. So I think it’s a good environment for me to be in as well as the other players. I’m looking very much forward to meeting my new teammates and so far, I received a warm welcome,” he ended.
The 31-year-old is unlikely to make his first debut tomorrow when Sekhukhune United face Stellenbosch.
