Mokotjo On ‘Do Or Die’ Cup Semi

FC Twente’s South African midfielder, Kamohelo Mokotjo, will come face to face with his former club, PEC Zwolle, tonight as he looks for his second consecutive KNVB Cup final.

The 24-year-old was an instrumental member of Zwolle’s side last year and put in a fine performance in the cup final as they won their first major trophy by hammering Ajax Amsterdam 5-1.

Earlier this season, the Bafana Bafana international made the move to Twente after an impeccable season in Zwolle, however it’s been a tough year for his new side as they were docked points due to financial issues.

Now, with the league title out of their reach, Mokotjo knows that the KNVB Cup is all that they have left to play for, and is their best chance of playing European football next season.

The talented midfielder told the media, "It's do or die for us. The cup can save our season. We are experiencing a difficult and tough season, but should still try to make the best of it. It is up to us to get out of this difficult situation. We have two goals: climbing up the rankings and win the cup.

“The guys at Twente have already asked about my experiences last year. We get one chance on Tuesday, it's all or nothing. Everyone understands the importance of that game.

“If we get to the cup final with Twente, that day is no excuse. Then we must also tackle that price. I live for football. I didn’t leave home at the age of 12 for nothing. I know what I've been through to get this far. Now I will do anything to keep living this dream. Playing in a second cup final would be a new dream. "
