Mamelodi Sundowns’ loaned striker Etiosa Ighodaro is growing at SuperSport United, thanks to Bradley Grobelar.


The 22-year-old Nigerian striker from Sundowns has revealed that the move to Matsatsantsa created an opportunity to meet the great Brobler.

“To be honest, I have learnt a lot from him. He is a very good striker to play along with,” Ighodaro told FARPost.

“Since my football career, I have never actually played with an experienced and good striker like Bradley Grobler.

“I have learnt too much from him you know, from his composure, finishing, and his dedication to the game is just fantastic,” Ighadaro, who is due to return to Sundowns for pre-season, concluded.


As always, we will see a few new faces at Mamelodi Sundowns next season, so will be new but not entirely brand new. Malebogo Modise is returning to Kabo Yellow after a loan stint with Chippa United.

Modise joined Kabo Yellow at junior level after leaving his home of Mahikeng, North West very young. Once known as “Bale,” Modise has loaned to JRD StarsMaritzburg United and of course Chippa United last season.

According to iDiski Times, Modise is going back to Sundowns after a wonderful loan season with the Chilli Boys in Gqeberha.

“Malebogo Modise, who was on a season-long loan at Chippa United will return to his mother club Mamelodi Sundowns,” the report said.

“With the player’s contract set to expire at the end of this month, June 30, Modise will return to Sundowns, though United are thought to be keen on retaining him for another season, having put in a great shift during his brief spell at the Gqeberha-based outfit.

“With Downs having the likes of international trio – Terrence Mashego, Aubrey Modiba, and Abdelmounain Boutouil in that position, the ever-hard-working left-back could well be set for an extended stay at Chippa,” the report added.


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.
