- Former Notwane star hunts a new home

Mogotsi’s promising career nearly came to an end after his sudden dismissal from Extension Gunners in December 2009.

Since his departure from Gunners he has flirted with a couple of teams in neighbouring countries, but never signed for any team.
Mogotsi is currently weighing his options. With the start of the league likely to be delayed due to court application launched by Security System the 2000 and 2003 Kabelano Charity Cup winner with Notwane is in no hurry to make a decision yet.
“I have been approached by some teams, but as an experienced player I need not rush into any decision,” Mogotsi told Voice Sport.
