Mamelodi Sundowns are likely to announce new signings in the coming weeks. One of them will be Rivaldo Coetzee’s new contract extension.


The 27-year-old from Kakamas in the Northern Cape joined Kabo Yellow from Ajax Cape Town in August 2017. The central defender/midfielder has reportedly signed his second extension that will take him to seven years at Sundowns.

“Mamelodi Sundowns have made a decision on the future of their utility player Rivaldo Coetzee whose contract runs out at the end of this season,” FARPost reported.

FARPost has learnt from a reliable source that Sundowns have exercised the one-year they had on Coetzee’s contract. 

“It also appears the club is open to offering the Kakamas-born a new deal with revised terms as time goes on,” the report 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.
