Mokotjo leaves Brentford


English Championship side Brentford have confirmed that South African midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo has left the club.

Brentford decided against renewing Mokotjo’s contract which expired on Tuesday.

Mokotjo had signed a short term contract extension until the end of the 2019/20 season as per the new rules drafted after football had been put to a half due to the ongoing coronavirus.

The season ended on Tuesday with Brentford failing to secure promotion to the English Premier league losing 2-0 to city rivals Fulham at Wembley stadium.

Mokotjo leaves at the end of his third season in West London and has played 102 games in all competitions for Brentford scoring six goals. He joined Brentford from Dutch side FC Twente in 2017. Picture: Brentford.

The midfielder played 26 appearances in all competitions this season for the ‘Bees’ scoring in the win at Wigan Athletic in the league.

Brentford coach Thomas Frank had nothing but praise for Mokotjo and his teammate Nikos.

“On behalf of everyone at Brentford FC, I would like to wish Nikos and Kamo all the best for the future.

”It has been a pleasure to work with them and they have given their all for the Club, on the pitch in the games they have played and in training, where their work has helped the group develop over the season,” added Frank.

“Nikos has been very unfortunate, and I wish him better luck with injuries in the years to come as he has proven his quality. Kamo has been superb for us over three years and now has the opportunity to take on a new challenge. They are part of the Brentford FC story and I hope we see them again.”

The 29-year-old will now be looking for the next chapter in his career and FARPost will keep a close tap on the developments towards finding a new club.
