I haven't as yet seen the best of Mothiba. Maybe he shines abroad because defenders there are easily dribbled. I have seen the best of Tau. He can dribble the African defenders. Others are just good abroad. You ask our former players; they were reluctant to come play for the National Team because they knew that African defenders are good.
