“He is a very professional coach and believes a lot in structure and being effective. That’s what I got today and when I had a talk with him in London. It will be good to work with him,” said Mokotjo, who missed Baxter’s first game in charge against Nigeria in June because of injury.
KAMOHELO Mokotjo is enjoying life under Stuart Baxter. The England-based midfielder has had his first session with the Englishman and says he enjoys working with him.
The midfielder had a tense relationship with former coach Ephraim “Shakes” Mashaba, which resulted in Mokotjo not making himself available for the national team.
He said he was impressed with their performance against the Super Eagles and was looking forward to tomorrow’s game against Cape Verde. “Against Nigeria I saw a well-structured team and a good victory. Whether I play or not is up to him. The most important thing is to qualify for the World Cup – nothing else.”
He said he would work hard to prove himself to the coach and South Africans.
He added that he was enjoying life at his new club in the English Championship, Brentford.
