Former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lebohang Mokoena has finally found a new home with newly promoted First Division side Maccabi FC.
Following their promotion from the ABC Motsepe League last season, Maccabi have decided to hand Mokoena a career lifeline.
The club confirmed the arrival of Mokoena on Thursday evening, ahead of their next league fixture on the road to Witbank Spurs on Saturday afternoon.

'Cheeseboy', as the former Buccaneer is commonly known, has brought an end to his year-long search for a new club since being released by Ajax Cape Town at the start of last season.
The 31-year-old midfielder, who also enjoyed a seven-year stay at Sundowns, is now looking to resurrect his career under former Kaizer Chiefs defender Moekete Tsotetsi, who is now coaching at the club.
Meanwhile, as earlier reported by KickOff.com, Maccabi also confirmed the signing of ex-Amakhosi winger Edmore Chirambadare.
