In the September issue of KickOff magazine, the 23-year-old is confident he made the right decision in choosing Twente as his new football home, where at Ajax he could have linked up with his Bafana Bafana teammate Thulani Serero.
The midfielder was one of South Africa’s football players who sparked the most interest in Europe during the transfer window period and Dutch giants were eager to sign the Matsatsantsa youth product.
“I like to make a choice after a lot of thinking – I don’t make rash decisions,” said the midfielder.
His decision, however, to join Twente was purely based on “character”.
“The coach (Alfred Schreuder) is a good person and I obviously knew how long they were interested in me. It was important for me to see the character of the person and the character of the club.”
“Twente has won everything there is to win in the Dutch competition. They win trophies. They are a top-four club so I have made a big move here.”
FC Twente won their first game of the Eredivisie (League) on September 13 when they overcame Go Ahead Eagles in a 2-1. Mokotjo was booked during his side's win.
FC Twente are currently in eighth position on the league standings with having drawn four games.
