Supersport United central midfielder Teboho Mokoena wants to continue inspiring other players to do better for the national team.
The midfield maestro has been a great asset for Matsatsantsa, until a recent injury.
After recovering and making the U23 camp in Durban, the Bethlehem-born player has voiced his desire to work with other players in the national team.
“I think everyone has an impact in the team and obviously the guys who are here we have been with them from Under 19 until now, I think in the league it’s me who has more games than them but I think having each other in the team and the ones that are coming in is a nice experience,” said Mokoena.
Having been with Bafana and now the U23s, Mokoena believes it is a great opportunity to play with different players.
“Having each other and the likes of Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Luke Fluers, Sifiso Mlungwana, they are gelling well with the team because it was their first camp with us so it’s nice working with the gents to also come to the national team and work with other players,” continued Mokoena.
With preparations for the Olympics, Mokoena wants to see himself injury-free and being part of the final squad. “I think it’s everyone’s dream to be in the Olympics and obviously it’s in my bucket list and I am looking forward to the Olympics, I want to see myself there and making my country proud. Our target there (Olympics) is the knockout stage,” concluded Mokoena.
