"It means a lot to me, it shows my hard work is paying off," Morena told KickOff.

"Football is something else. I sat down and spoke to my parents and my agent before deciding which team to join.

"I chose Sundowns because they have a lot of players that plays the kind of football that I prefer. I can say I chose to join Sundowns because of their style of play."
