Lebohang Mokoena wants to leave Mamelodi Sundowns

Lebohang Mokoena has asked Mamelodi Sundowns to let him leave in order to get some game-time.
‘Cheeseboy’ has seen precious little action in recent times – both as a result of injury and the number of quality players at Chloorkop.
University of Pretoria were keen to sign the 29-year-old on loan, but the Brazilians were only prepared to go through with the deal if AmaTuks paid his full salary.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane today confirmed Mokoena’s request to leave.
“He spoke to us and he said he wants to get game-time [elsewhere] because he is not getting enough here,” ‘Jingles’ says.
“He is playing on the right and we have [Themba] Zwane [playing there] and we have Anthony [Laffor], and sometimes Khama [Billiat] can play on the right.
“It’s not easy. The poor boy is a good guy; he trains well and is still quality … he can play at any level. He can still play in the team, but I have to respect principles and be fair in team selection.”
