New Sekhukhune United signing Kamohelo Mokotjo says he is looking forward to playing for his new team after spending over a decade abroad.
Mokotjo started his career at Supersport United and made his professional in December 2008 against Santos. In 2009, the midfielder joined Excelsior Rotterdam, Netherlands, where he made 27 appearances in his first season.
“I’m expecting a lot after playing abroad for over a decade because I know the league is unpredictable,” the player said after he was unveiled.
“It’s my responsibility to adopt and adjust as quick as possible. I know there are lot of differences between where I’ve played and the PSL but I’m looking forward to the challenge. At the end of the day football is football and it’s a challenge.”
In 2010/11 season, the 31-year-old joined Feyenoord where he spent five seasons before joining PEC Zwolle.
“I have a lot in my hands because I’m at a club that is striving for consistency and testing their limits. So it’s a good environment for me to be in and other players. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates and so far I have received a warm welcome. That is all that matters.
To all the supporters, thank for the warm welcome. We are looking to bringing you good results and consistency.”
