The Botswana Football Association (BFA) has stated that they would like to produce more players like Bidvest Wits forward Mogakolodi Ngele.

The Botswana international recently helped the Clever Boys clinch their first ever Premier Soccer League (PSL) title.

BFA's marketing and communication officer Tumo Mpatane said Ngele was a true reflection of a properly developed modern day football player.

“It is a great feat achieved by him (Ngele)," Mpatane told Mmegi.

"He is one player who has gone through all the stages of development.

"Development is something the president (Maclean Letshwiti) is passionate about and we hope that the country can produce more like him in the future."

Ngele has proved to be Botswana's most decorated player in South African football history - having won six major trophies since moving to the Southern African country in 2012.

The 26-year-old player lifted the MTN8 Cup and Telkom KnockOut with Platinum Stars. He has clinched the Telkom Knockout Cup and PSL title with Mamelodi Sundowns.

This season, Ngele helped Wits claim the MTN8 Cup and PSL title. He's expected to return to Sundowns following his season-long loan stint at Wits.
