Having returned to Mzansi in November last year, the Rockville-born attacker was attacker to share the experience and the result of the trials.

According to “Rele,” the football in England is not entirely different from the local game.

The Pirates star further added that Wolves are yet to provide feedback.

“I would say there is not much of a difference [football-wise]. I didn’t get the feedback, but let’s hope for the best,” said Mofokeng via FARPost.

“But then I don’t think there is much of a difference between us, the PSL players, and the players at Wolves. But then I am just hoping for the best,” the Pirates ace concluded.
