The announcement made by Pirates on deadline day on Friday was arguably the biggest of the January transfer window. It confirmed that their star player is leaving for Sundowns. Like Lorch, Mokoena also left Pirates for Sundowns and went on to win the league title with the Tshwane giants.
Mokoena has sound advice for the playmaker popularly known as ‘Nyoso’. He acknowledged the shock for Buccaneers and the impact of the player’s departure on the fans. Mokoena mentioned that sometimes staying at a club for too long may result in losing hunger or ambition, expressing that the player was missed in the national team for the AFCON due to losing his position there.
Mokoena believes that the player will get his chance at Sundowns and that he will fit in well due to his quality. He encouraged the player to take it as motivation to achieve more and to grab the opportunity as it is easy to go down the pecking order. Mokoena also expressed confidence in the player’s ability to do well at Sundowns and make an impact.
