Kamohelo Mokotjo got some big praise from his head coach last week as the Bafana Bafana international was described as 'the glue in the team' at Brentford.
Big Praise For Bafana Star, 'The Glue In The Team'
Mokotjo’s Brentford ended the season over the weekend with a 3-0 win over Preston North End to finish 11th in the English Championship, however the South African was rested for the final game of the campaign after recently returning from an injury.
The 28-year-old midfield man has been a key figure for the Bees over the course of 2018/19, playing 34 times in the league as they managed to mount an early play-off push before a dip mid-season meant that they had to settle for a place in the top half.
While the likes of Neal Maupay and Said Benrahma will take many of the plaudits at the club this season, their head coach, Thomas Frank, had some special words for his Mzansi star, following the most prolific goalscoring season of his career - he got three.
Speaking last week, Frank said, "Kamohelo Mokotjo is the glue in the team, everything goes through him, defensively and offensively. He doesn't score the most goals, provide the most assists, or win the most headers, but he gets everything together.”
Some of Mokotjo's stats for the season:
42 successful tackles
86.9% pass completion
25 key passes
0 yellow/red cards
The midfielder, who helped Bafana Bafana beat Libya last month, will now turn his attentions to the African Cup of Nations as Stuart Baxter's side looks to make a name for themselves in Egypt.
