DONE DEAL: Mokoena joins Mamelodi Sundowns

SuperSport United have announced the departure of midfielder Teboho Mokoena with immediate effect.

Mokoena leaves Matsatsantsa to join cross-town rivals Mamelodi Sundowns for an undisclosed fee. He’s signed a three-year deal.

BACKGROUND

The Bethlehem-born star made his professional debut against the now-defunct Highlands Park back in 2016.

He has since played just under 200 games for the Tshwane-based side and found the back of the net on 20 occasions.

Ever since joining SuperSport, Mokoena has won the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup trophy twice.

The club’s CEO Stanley Matthews said: “Teboho has served our club with distinction since joining us in his mid-teens. He has helped us win four major trophies and has consistently delivered on and off the field of play which is why our Chairman Khulu Sibiya gave his blessing for this move.”

“He has made us proud by representing South Africa from Under 17 to the Under 23 Olympics team and now Bafana Bafana. He was PSL young player of the year and is a fantastic role model for young players to follow in how to manage a professional career in sport.

“As a young man, he gives generously of his money and his time to the communities from where he grew up. He will remain a special son of our club alongside special names like Kamohelo Mokotjo, Daine Klate, Kermit Erasmus and Ronwen Williams. While we are obviously very sad to lose him as a player, we are delighted for him that he has earned himself a big move to a great club and wish him the best of luck at this crossroads in his career.“
