R14m Mokotjo Set For France As New Life Begins

Kamohelo Mokotjo's Preseason Will Start Tomorrow In France

By Joe Crann - Jul 07, 2017 05:19 PM @YesWeCrann
Kamohelo Mokotjo will waste no time getting to know his new teammates at Brentford FC and will jet out to France for the club’s pre-season camp tomorrow.
 
 
The 26-year-old signed a three-year deal with The Bees after they bought him for a reported €1m (R14m) from FC Twente in Holland, bringing to an end two years of Brentford trying to bring him on board.
 
Mokotjo’s previous move to Brentford was halted because of the strict work permit rules in the English game, however, the fact that he recently acquired a Dutch passport meant that that was no longer an issue.
 
Dean Smith, Brentford’s head coach, was delighted with the acquisition, stating that they’ve been looking to get him in for a while.
 
Smith told the club’s official website, “I am pleased that we have been able to add Kamo to our group now he has become available. He is a player that we have been looking at for a while and we are sure he will fit into the system and style that we have here. 
 
 
“Kamo is a defensive midfielder who can break play up, cover a lot of ground and use the ball intelligently. He is a player that will certainly add to the qualities we already have within the squad.” 
 
Meanwhile, Rasmus Ankersen, their Co-Director of Football, said: “We have been scouting Kamo for two years and we believe he is a perfect match to our style of play. We are really pleased that it was possible to come to an agreement with Twente this summer and especially that we could sign him early in the window.
 
“It means that he will be able to travel with the rest of the squad to pre-season camp on Saturday to take part in the important preparations for next season.” 
 
Mokotjo completed more passes in the Eredivisie in the last season than any other midfielder.

FC Twente is a better team compared to Brentford, i guess is not a bad move considering he may attrect the likes of Newcastle, Sheffield, Leceister and Fulham if he peforms well in England. not a bad move Kamo

"If you don’t bring better than what you have then why bring? Should it be because he is free? We have top eight which will be mixed with Champions League so we would like to have players that will make the team stronger and not give numbers. That is the thing and it is not easy. We are limited but we need quality." Jingles concluded
