Tembo said according to the Sowetan: “If he [Mokoena] leaves, he won’t be the first player to leave SuperSport.

“Players have been leaving and we still had replacements and he’s no different. We will bring in a few youngsters who’re already training with the first team.

“On the bench [against Chiefs] we had Thalente Mbatha, he’s another midfielder as well. There’s also Selaelo Rasebotja another midfielder who plays for our Diski team. Those are players which we are looking at giving game time to prepare them for next season, so it’s not really a concern for us.”
