Mamelodi Sundowns Lebohang Mokoena injury

Posted: 13 August 2013 Time: 15:48

Lebohang ‘Cheeseboy’ Mokoena has been cleared to resume full training, but admits he is still withdrawn at training.

Mokoena underwent a hip operation almost a year ago. In fact, the last time ‘Cheeseboy’ played for Mamelodi Sundowns in an official match was on September 2 in a 2-1 loss to Maritzburg United.

The player tells the club’s official website he is keen to get back into action: “The vibe is very positive here at Chloorkop and its plain to see that the players are determined to do very well this season and I can’t afford to miss that.”

Sundowns' website reports: “According to the team doctors the player is now working to regain full fitness, but Mokoena admitted that he doesn’t want to rush himself.”

The 26-year-old has been out for so long he says he feels like a new player!

“I’m very excited to be cleared off the injury list and I feel like a completely new player because I haven’t played football for a long time” ‘Cheeseboy’ tells Sundowns’ official website.

Mokoena has already featured in two club practise matches, coming on as a late substitute against Azam FC of Tanzania and playing the whole second half when the first team played Sundowns reserves.

The fan favourite says he is commited to doing extra work on his fitness, but admits he still has to work on his mental strength.

“At training I really want to get involved in the thick of things but whenever I see strong tackles fly at training I still get withdrawn a little bit. You see once you have been out injured for too long, you definitely will do anything to avoid going back there.

“I know my fitness levels and right now I’m nowhere near that but I’m putting in extra training on my legs, sometimes before and after training because I’m very determined to play for the team once again.”

But strangely those ''two zebras'' finished the season with a League and Nedbank medals. So who lost in the end between Mokoena and the ''two zebras''?
