SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews has confirmed that the club is already preparing for life without star midfielder Teboho Mokoena.
In an interview with SAFJA, Matthews admitted that he doubts Mokoena will still be at SuperSport United next season.
“We know when to let go of our players and make dollars off them. I think a player like Teboho, if you ask me will he be at the club next year, I don’t think so,” said Matthews.
Matthews said he and chairman Khulu Sibiya have had a chat with Mokoena on how the club intends to help him leave the club.
According to Matthews, Mokoena has offers in front him and without mentioning the teams that are after the star midfielder, the CEO said the timing should be good for SuperSport.
Mokoena was heavily linked with both Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns in the last transfer window – and either team could eventually get to sign him.
“He, myself and the chairman, Khulu Sibiya had a chat and we have paved a way on how we see him leaving the club because he has a number of options sitting in front of him at the moment.
“We are going to be with him every step of the way in making sure that when he leaves the club it will be at a time that is good for us,” continued Matthews.
Matthews further dismissed the notion that SuperSport United don’t want to sell their players to certain teams, especially Chiefs.
“We have sold players to Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Sundowns for the last 20 years and that’s part and parcel of the game. We know when it is time to let certain players go,” added Matthews.
