The club has won a lot of trophies in the past and I want to be part of that winning environment and I am also looking forward to working with coach Kaitano Tembo. As a former player and current coach of the team, I think I can learn a lot from him and reward him for the faith he has put in signing me.”

Players agent Errol Dicks who confirmed that the player also had formal offers from Europe but chose to come to the PSL as his pathway of choice. Dicks said, “TT had interest from Europe, but he is young and has time on his side and as a first move out the country SuperSport is an ideal platform for him to shine in a team that is not afraid to play young players.”

The President of Township Rollers FC, Mr Jagdish Shah, “We are pleased to have added value to the career of Ditlhokwe, he has been a true role model to all his peers. We at Rollers pride ourselves in not standing in the way of our players furthering their development we take this opportunity to wish TT well in his future career.”

SuperSport CEO Stan Matthews added, “TT is a player we have tracked for some time and we feel he has a really bright future at SuperSport. We have had Botswana players here before like Dipsy Selolawane, Gabonamong, and Ngele and they all made an impact, so we are looking forward to TT helping us to win trophies and maintain a good league campaign.”
