Aaron Mokoena heading to United Arab Emirates

Posted: 8 July 2011 Time: 11:23

Aaron Mokoena's agent insists the former South African captain definitely wants to leave Portsmouth, with an unnamed club in the United Arab Emirates said to be closing in on a deal worth a staggering R18 million a season. 

Boss Steve Cotterill said last week that it would take 'a decent fee' to lure the former Blackburn Rovers defender away from Fratton Park and denied that the 30-year-old wanted to leave.    But Dietmar Wendorff – who has been handling Mokoena's affairs since he split from long-term business manager Rob Moore last year – says his client has instructed him to find him a new club.   "He's told me that he wants to leave now and I have a team in the Emirates who is very interested n taking him," he tells    "We're negotiating with the club at the moment but I cannot say who it is. We are hoping for a salary of around €2 million a year.  I've also talked to him about Spain but we will have to compare the offers."   Mokoena arrived at Portsmouth from Blackburn in 2009 but slipped down the pecking order under Cotterill at the end of last season. He was dropped from the Bafana Bafana squad back in March but has yet to announce his international retirement.

This guy must just come back, teams like Sundowns can afford to pay him decent salary plus he can add much needed experience within the team.

Sister P no the only difference between Mbazo & Shabba is that, Shabba is poor having to resort to selling fish & Chips in order to fight poverty, otherwise they are both COWS

This is a captain I decided not to watch Bafana games during his time as a captain. Bafana performance on the field went from bad to worse when this man was a captain. He kept accumulating his caps due to his commitment to to respect Bafana's call ups but the fact remains, this man is a COW. Bafana never achieved anything during his time and at one stage I felt he was only getting game time because he the captain and South Africa was failing dismally to produce quality players with leadership qualities. He kept on giving away free kicks in dangerous positions with his bad tackles as a result Bafana were always punished.

I will never like him and I don't understand what are you guys talking about when you talking about his achievement?

This guy is the luckiest cow I've lived to know my whole life. A true leader is seen by the example he sets on the field of play, where it matters most to be a footballer. . .I'm sure at 30 he's still learning. I may have forgiven him his multiple mistakes that cost us a place in AFCON & WC, but I havent forgotten. The 2010 WC became a nightmare for mzantsi diski lovers mainly because of him, yet I hear some people claiming he's the best. . .I'll be damned

If Mokoena was a cow he would not have played in England. Who doesnt make mistakes? Do we know about your mistakes?, we dont cos u re not in the public eye, yet u may have so many unforgivable mistakes. So stop playing holly cows here MORONS!!!

Mr Mokoena Many South Africans adore u,n many who would appreciate u do not have access to these platforms. As South africans we love u my Brother n i know i speak here for many who love u. Forget about these few Lunitics, Loosers n Haters. We will never forget your vaild contribution to the country." Long live Aaron Mokoena Long live"
