SuperSport United have confirmed that Bafana Bafana midfielder Teboho Mokoena has left the club and joined PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns for an undisclosed fee.
Mokoena has been at SuperSport since 2014 after he joined their academy.
He immediately stood out and made his first-team debut in the same year.
In his time with Matsatsantsa, Mokoena played close to 200 games and scored over 20 goals.
He played a crucial role in helping Matsatsantsa lift the MTN 8 and Nedbank Cup trophy twice and contributed immensely in SuperSport United’s historic CAF Confederations Cup journey, finishing as runners-up losing narrowly to DRCs TP Mazembe in 2017.
Mokoena has also scooped many personal accolades including the 2020/21 goal of the season, three goal of the month awards and many more club awards.
The Bafana Bafana international has represented South Africa at all youth levels (U17, U20, U23) and featured for the U23 side in 2020 Tokyo Olympic games in August having played all three games, scoring one goal.
The Bethlehem-born has been a regular starter for the senior side and played in all six 2022 World Cup Qualifier matches scoring two crucial goals and has just under 20 Bafana Bafana caps under his belt.
“Teboho has served our club with distinction since joining us in his mid-teens," said SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews.
"He has helped us win four major trophies and has consistently delivered on and off the field of play which is why our chairman Khulu Sibiya gave his blessing for this move.
"He has made us proud by representing South Africa from Under 17 to the Under 23 Olympics team and now Bafana Bafana.
"He was PSL young player of the year and is a fantastic role model for young players to follow in how to manage a professional career in sport. As a young man he gives generously of his money and his time to the communities from where he grew up. He will remain a special son of our club.
"While we are obviously very sad to lose him as a player, we are delighted for him that he has earned himself a big move to a great club and wish him the best of luck at this crossroads in his career," said Matthews.
