"We understand each other. Obviously we played together in the national team before and we worked on understanding each other as the individual before we can understand each other on the field," says Letsholonyane.

"We do a lot of work to make sure that it works. We try and work hard at training with our teammates to try and make it work."

'Yeye' enjoys playing within the structure set by Matsatsantsa coach Stuart Baxter, who he won four trophies with at Naturena.

"I think it's the knowledge that he has of football and how he wants his team to play.

"It might be boring to supporters and other people but to him and us who are working with him, we know exactly what he wants.

"Also what type of football will make us achieve. So for me, for the fact that he emphasise us on a structure more than just playing and running around helps a lot."
