Bafana Bafana maestro Teboho Mokoena is the second-most valuable player in the PSL. How much money would Sundowns need to be offered to sell their star midfielder?

THEORY: Three potential replacements for Lorch at Orlando Pirates

LOL: For ONE Kylian Mbappe you can get 81 Teboho Mokoenas


Since joining Sundowns in 2022 from SuperSport United, Teboho Mokoena has become a lynchpin for the champions in the heart of the engine room. His range of passing has made him the preeminent central midfielder in the country. According to transfermrkt.com, 27-year-old Mokoena is the second-most valuable player in the South African Premier Division with his value estimated at €2.2 million (R44.77 million). According to KickOff.com, the Brazilians might look to recoup as much as double that value if they can attract interest from the right foreign (wealthy) buyers. Seeing Mokoena leave the club would be a potentially bitter pill to swallow for Sundowns fans, but R90 million could soften the blow and be smartly reinvested.

OPINION: It’s time for Bafana Bafana to move on from Percy Tau

Tebza was superb at the base of midfield for South Africa in the tournament, dovetailing perfectly with Sphephelo Sithole to help the side control games in the centre of the park. We all know about his composure, silky first touch and reading of the game in a Sundowns jersey, but it’s great to see him flourishing for the national side. That sumptuous direct free-kick against Morocco’s Atlas Lions was a highlight of the tournament. At 27, the maestro is entering his peak. What an elegant player this guy is with his wide range of passing and in-game intelligence. Rumours of interest from the English Premier League and France’s Ligue 1 aren’t going away.
