Mokoena attracted interest from Premier Soccer League clubs including Kaizer Chiefs and Belgian side Anderlect.

Teboho Mokoena recently opened up that he wanted to join Sundowns because he was a winner and wanted to join a team of champions.

“As the saying goes, ‘The home of Champions’, I was also born a winner and I want to see myself winning the league, competing in the CAF Champions League as well as the FIFA Club World Cup and just winning trophies,” Mokoena told the Sundowns website.

Mokoena joined Sundowns from Supersport United on a four and a half year deal.

Following his move, he penned a message to his former club Supersport United, thanking them for his time at the club. Mokoena was at Supersport since the age of 17, Soccer Laduma reported.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank SuperSport United, for the chance they gave me in 2015 and the road they paved for me. I arrived here as a child, and I am leaving as a man,” he said.

Despite the amount of midfielder options already available at the Brazilians, Mokoena is eager to fight for his place at the club, admitting that he is excited by their style of play.

As reported earlier by Sports Brief, Mamelodi Sundowns are expected to announce the signing of another talented midfielder in the coming days as Teboho Mokoena joins from PSL club Supersport United.

Mokoena has the been topic of much transfer talk in January and attracted interest from Anderlecht in Belgium as well. But as The South African reports, it's the Brazilians who won the race for the highly sought-after midfielder.

According to Front Runner Sports though, Mamelodi Sundowns have 14 midfield options signed to the club already. It's for this reason that many have accused the club of killing off the competition on social media.
