Mokotjo lands major honour in Holland

SA Players Abroad

Bafana Bafana star Kamohelo Mokotjo has landed a major honour in the Netherlands after being named in former club PEC Zwolle's All-Star team.

Since the start of May, Eredivisie side PEC Zwolle have been running an online Facebook poll in which supporters are asked to vote for their favourite players from the club's history to feature in an "All-Star" team.

The voting for the final few positions is yet to be concluded, but it has been confirmed that Mokotjo has secured his place in the team, despite the South Africa international spending just over a year with the club.

The 29-year-old, who currently plies his trade with Brentford in England's Championship, played a starring role in Zwolle's memorable 2013/14 campaign, in which the club won the KNVB Cup and qualified for the UEFA Europa League.

Despite the brevity of his time at the club, Mokotjo's impact has made him popular among Zwolle supporters, who voted for him as their favourite defensive midfielder of all time, ahead of Jan Hendricksen, Joey van den Berg and Jan van Raalte.
