Mokoena Joins Masandawana!

Mamelodi Sundowns are delighted to announce the signing of Bafana Bafana international midfielder Teboho Mokoena from SuperSport United.

The 25-year-old joins The Brazilians after signing a three-and-a-half year deal with an option of an additional year at Chloorkop. Mokoena has been one of the outstanding stars in the DStv Premiership and has won the MTN8 honours with United. The young maestro expressed his excitement upon joining Masandawana and emphasised on his aspiration to win trophies:

“I want to take this time to show appreciation, I am very proud of this achievement and I’m also happy with the decision that I made to join Mamelodi Sundowns. As the saying goes, ‘The home of Champions’, I was also born a winner and I want to see myself winning the league, competing in the CAF Champions League as well as the FIFA Club World Cup and just winning trophies.”

The Free State starlet, born in Bethlehem, has netted 15 goals and made 17 assists in his 156 appearances for Matsatsantsa and played an essential part in South Africa’s World Cup qualifiers as well as being a shining star for the nation at the 2020 Olympics in Japan.

Teboho becomes the second player to join Sundowns from Matsatsantsa in the 2021/22 season, following in the footsteps of defender Grant Kekana. Alongside Kekana, Mokoena will join up with former SuperSport teammate Aubrey Modiba, as well as national team defenders Rushine De Reuck and Thapelo Morena.

“Personally I am proud of this milestone in my career, to move from SuperSport United to Mamelodi Sundowns. It was an easy decision for me to make because this club showed interest in me and it was also a club that I had hoped to play for. I like their style of play, the way in which they are dominating the league and on the international stage as well.”

Welcome home to the home of the Champions, Mawere!

    Welcome home boy!! I think this is the player that replace H Kekana! Let him get that number 8! He can shoot from a distance and that was what was lacking from the current crop of central midfielders at our team at the moment! Welcome home Boy! You will succeed at Downs!

    This is the kind of signing that makes us proud to be associated with this big brand.We really signed wisely,what we don’t have in the team.He can ran for 120 minutes,win the ball,shoot, assists and also score goals.We only need players who can play for us for a very long time,play for Bafana and also be sold abroad.Welcome to the home of champions Tebza.You are guaranteed league medal at the end of the season.This really shows how ambitious we are.I was Maboe speedy recovery so that we could have three hard workers in the middle,AJ,Lebo and Tebza.Thanks to management for bringing the boy home.

    This is what is separating us from the rest of the team ” succession planing”

    We bought Jali coz we knew Mabunda and was aging.

    Converted Revaldo coz Keke was aging

    We have now bought Mokoena as we know Jali is aging.

    We bought Ngobeni coz Coetse is aging.

    Welcome boy

    Thanks to the Sandawana management team and coachig staff for signing Tebogo Mokoena. I agree that he is themissing piece of the puzzle in our current midfield. I felt that his previous club made him do too many defensive duties after Furman’s departure. He should thrive now that he has the likes of Coetzee and Jali to cover defensive duties. I’m also excited about Erwin Saaverda’s arrival. It is good to see that we are adding players that are already in their national teams so that we can go further that the quarterfinals in the Champions league to win it this time. Of course Ralani can also change games with his tricker and speed. We measure ourselves against international standards at Sundowns and we are not going to sit on our laurels just because we are guaranteed to win the local league year-in-year out. Looking forward to a second star this season.
