In an interview with Pirates’ official website, Hotto confirmed that he can speak German, and has hinted on how he can assist his teammates in getting the message across from Bucs coach.  

“Growing up in Swakopmund as a player, I played for a club called Swakopmund Football Club which was owned by a gentleman from Germany, this is where I learned German. The club is actually known as SFC and is supported by clubs from Germany. When I was playing for the U17s I was fortunate enough to go showcase my talents in Germany,” he said.
