Done Deal: Sundowns officially unveils Mokoena at Chloorkop


The wait is over, after weeks of hardcore negotiations Mamelodi Sundowns has proved once again that they will do whatever it takes to sign a player. Sundowns have now got their transfer target Teboho Mokoena from their arch rivals SuperSport United. This gas been a long time coming signee for Masandawana as they've been probing to get the services of the SuperSport star. Even though the fee haven't been disclosed, but Mokoena has signed a lucrative contract with the Tshwane giants. This has been confirmed by both Matsatsantsa and Downs on their social media platforms. This has made Sundowns fans celebrate Tebza's move to Chloorkop as they feel that they have the best midfielder in South Africa. He's expected to gel well with his new teammates as they will try to create magic on the field of play.

This move has also got a lot of criticism from other football fans that are not part of the Yellow Nation. As they felt that Mokoena had to think twice before moving to Sundowns as he might not get regular game time and that will mess with his morale and performance. Hence, some fans have called it a career suicide since he struggle to fit in the Downs philosophy as well as what the technical team want from him. Most of these comments come Kaizer Chiefs fans as their club was in the running of getting Mokoena's services. However, Downs tabled a counter offer that Chiefs match. That's when the 25-year-old midfield maestro agreed to personal terms with the Brazilians.

According to reports, the European club Anderlecht also tried to lure him to their camp. However, Sundowns utilised their massive cheque book to win SuperSport's heart into releasing their highly-rated player towards the end January transfer window. Mokoena spent six years at SuperSport United and made 150 appearances.
