Mokoena has been given the blessings to leave SuperSport United after attracting interest from a number of clubs, especially locally.

Both Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are after the services of Mokoena, and the midfielder could join either side next term.

And Tembo tried to downplay the void Mokoena will leave at SuperSport United, saying he’s already preparing for life without the Bethlehem-born star.

Tembo said he is preparing younger players such as Thalente Mbatha and Selaelo Rasebotja to possibly take over from Mokoena.

But for now, Tembo’s biggest concern is to keep Mokoena focused on the job at hand as he’s still a SuperSport United player.

“For now, we’ve got to focus on the season. As much as we are thinking about that, at the same time it’s also key that we have ‘Tebza’ focused for us because he is still part of us,” Tembo told reporters.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen at the end of the season. So, we don’t want him to be distracted by that,” he said.

“As much as we will prepare, he is not the only player who has left SuperSport before and we’ve still had replacements. He’s no different.

“We will bring in a few youngsters who are already training with the first team. You could see on the bench we had Thalente Mbatha as well as Selaelo Rasebotja,” confirmed Tembo.

“He is also another midfielder who plays for our Diski Challenge team. So, those are the players we are looking at giving game time to prepare them for next season,” he continued.

“So, it’s not really a concern for us. We just need to make sure that he (Mokoena) focuses on his game because that’s very key,” concluded Tembo.
