Hake: Mokotjo one of Twente’s key players

FC Twente coach Rene Hake is adamant midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo will return to the club despite his absence from the team's training camp in Spain.

The self-exiled Bafana Bafana international has formed an integral part of Hake's squad, making 16 appearances and netting once in the Eredivisie campaign thus far, and the coach is convinced that the player's absence has got nothing to do with wanting a move away from the club.

"I have such a relationship with him that I am convinced that he is not going to force a departure in this way," he told reporters.

"There is no signal that reaches us that something is going on.

"Kamo is one of our key players and we want him to be here this week as soon as possible, with the good feeling of being all together picking up again.

"He plays an important role," he concluded.

The 25-year-old's absence from his side's training camp is reportedly attributed to the player losing his travel documents.

The defensive midfielder has been a mainstay in Twente's starting line-up during his three-year stay with the club, amassing a total of 88 appearances.
