Tebogo Mokoena has been rising constantly since he was promoted to the first team of SuperSport United in 2016. Mokoena played a huge role when Matsatsantsa won cups under Stuart Baxter and Kaitano Tembo.
In 2017, he got his debut at Bafana Bafana and has been one of the crucial members that represent the nation. This year before he joined Mamelodi Sundowns, Mokoena was rumoured to be heading to Club Brugge in Belgium but the move wasn’t successful.
Although joining Masandawana came with some big challenges, he has been able to don the yellow and blue jersey and produced some splendid performances. Perhaps some of the main factors behind the young man’s success are discipline and humility.
The Chief Whip of the National Council of Provinces, Mr. Seiso Mohai, hosted an event on Friday to hand over signed Teboho Mokoena memorabilia to the Free State Legislature. See the pictures and watch the video!
The statement from the National Parliament said, “The occasions serve as an acknowledgment of Mr. Mokoena’s enormous contribution to soccer in the Free State Province and nationally.”
“Mr. Mokoena has made an immense contribution to the game. He has played for SuperSport United FC, but since 27 January 2022 has played as a midfielder for Mamelodi Sundowns FC. He is also part of the national team, Bafana Bafana.
“He has since established the Teboho Mokoena Foundation, with the intention of making a sustained contribution to developing soccer in the Free State, with a special focus on developing local soccer teams and schools,” the statement added.
MOKOENA HAPPY TO BE A SUNDOWNS PLAYER
When he signed for Masandawana, Mokoena expressed massive happiness, “Personally, I am proud of this milestone in my career, after moving from SuperSport United to Mamelodi Sundowns,” Mokoena told Sundowns’ social media.
“It was an easy decision 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.”.
