Bafana Bafana international Kamohelo Mokotjo has revealed why he’d be happy to consider joining Kaizer Chiefs.
Recently, midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo was linked with a possible move back to SuperSport United, but ultimately nothing materialised.
As it stands, the 31-year-old ex-Matsatsantsa, Brentford FC and Feyenoord player is currently a free agent after leaving MLS side FC Cincinnati, while he has now spoken glowingly of Chiefs during a wide-ranging interview.
Mokotjo had been training with another former club, FC Twente, where he aimed to potentially land a contract, but an injury scuppered these plans.
“I had a set back with my knee. I was cleared two weeks ago and I am completely fit at the moment,” said Mokotjo in an exclusive interview on Metro FM, as quoted by SABC Sport.
When answering further questions, the 31-year-old – who has played for a host of teams overseas – said he’d certainly be willing to consider a return to South Africa.
“Chiefs has a good history. I played against them a lot in the youth and they were very intimidating.
But there’s not much I can say, I see they are building.
It’s a wonderful club and it deserves more. So, I would be open to that,” he said when Amakhosi would be an appealing destination.
“I think I would consider that. It’s not really something to be scared of because I know I have my footballing quality – the best aspect of me is my mind, my mentality.
I know there’s a lot I would change because I have obviously played in different countries.
“I have the experience, and that also teaches you to know what to expect in games and at certain clubs.
But I also know how to stay grounded and keep two feet on the ground at all times.
Football is an evolving game, I am ruling out nothing at the moment.
“Money is important, but it is not the most important thing. What I want to do is, if the opportunity presents itself, I want to go where there’s a winning mentality.
I want to enjoy my football and my home country,” Mokotjo concluded.
