Just hours after his selection for Bafana Bafana by new coach Gordon Igesund, there was no sign of Feyenoord youngster Kamohelo Mokotjo for the Dutch side in the UEFA Europa League clash with Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic.
The South African youngster was one of three players left in Rotterdam by coach Ronald Koeman, deemed surplus to requirements for the fixture.

While Igesund was quick to praise the 21-year-old for his ‘fine form’ for Feyenoord this season, the truth is he has yet to play a single minute in any of their six matches so far.
Mokotjo has sat on the bench for two of those games, but has otherwise been left in the stands by Koeman, or in this instance left over a 1000 kilometres away while the team faces a crucial battle for a place in the group stages of the competition.
Mokotjo did see action for the side in the early part of pre-season, even wearing the captain’s armband in one game, but his last start in a competitive fixture came back in April.
