Brentford make decision on Kamo future

African Football

Brentford have announced the exit of South Africa international midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo after missing out on Premier League promotion.

Mokotjo, 29, joined the Championship outfit from FC Twente in 2017 in a deal worth a reported €1-million and enjoyed three fruitful seasons in London.

The technically gifted midfielder scored six goals in 102 appearances for the Bees who narrowly missed out on automatic promotion and then suffered heartbreak in the play-off final during the 2019/20 campaign.

Brentford confirmed that the Bafana Bafana star and Greece forward Nikos Karelis have both left the club after the short-term contracts signed during the suspension of football expired after the defeat to Fulham this week.

"On behalf of everyone at Brentford FC, I would like to wish Nikos and Kamo all the best for the future," head coach Thomas Frank said.

"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.

"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."
