DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns may lose a clutch player before next season. The name is Teboho Mokoena.


According to iDiski Times, two-time Qatari champions Al-Wakrah are keen to sign the 27-year-old Mokoena from Sundowns. The report added that Kabo Yellow‘s asking price has somewhat put the deal in jeopardy.

“Qatari Stars League side Al-Wakrah have expressed interest in Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teboho Mokoena. Mokoena has been linked to several clubs over the past two seasons after emerging as one of the leading performers for club and country.

“He starred with Bafana Bafana at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and was included in the Team of the Tournament, which brought interest from Egyptian giants Al Ahly and in England, according to media reports,” the report added. Meanwhile, Sundowns are currently trying to entice the Bethlehem-born Mokoena with a new deal.


Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos recently shared his views on Mokoena’s possible move out of Mzansi.

“Maybe in Sundowns, they will not be happy now, but I hope Mokwena can make the steps because he’s ready for it,” said Broos as quoted by the Citizen.

“Sometimes I say, what’s this one going to do in Europe? But Teboho is ready to do it. And maybe some other players also.

Addtionally, Mokoena’s Sundowns teammate Lucas Ribeiro believes the former SuperSport United star deserves to go abroad.

“Actually, Tebza is one of the players, it’s surprises me with all the attributes and the qualities he has, strong physical presence and the ability to score outside the box, shoots and also runs a lot. So, he’s got all the qualities that you can get from a midfielder. It still surprises me that he’s my teammate in South Africa because players of that quality, you probably see them in top clubs in Europe,” Ribeiro said via SABC Sport.

“I asking about him being focused in Sundowns or maybe being actually disturbed by other offers but he said he’s gonna put every focus he has on the last two games or the last games of the league and also to focus on the final, that’s where his mind is at but God decides or takes the final decision. But his mind and everything is towards Sundowns,” the Brazilian attacker concluded.

Should Sundowns hold on to Mokoena or should the player be allowed to move on next season? Let us know in the comments section below.
