Teboho Mokoena is still staying hopeful that he will achieve his goal of playing at the Olympic games, despite the fact that Tokyo 2020 was recently postponed.
The SuperSport United youngster played a big role in helping David Notoane’s side qualify for the showpiece event in Japan, however the age rules mean that there is now confusion as to whether he and some of his teammates will qualify for the games next year when they are eventually held.
Soccer Laduma got in touch with the Matsatsantsa midfielder in the comfort of his own home now as he hunkers in for the lockdown that begins tonight, where he spoke of the Olympics, his personal training plans in isolation, and how he’s going to split up his time.
Speaking to SL, the 23-year-old said, “I’m very disappointed that it’s not happening, but on the brighter side of things, our health comes first. It’s beyond our control, there’s nothing we can do about it. It was a wise decision to postpone it.
“That’s what I’m hoping for! Because I need play the Olympics, man! It’s the biggest stage, and I think we deserve to be there.”
