After only less than two months of being deemed a free agent, highly-rated defender Luckyboy Mokoena has found a new club in preparation for the second round of the season.
Having started the season with TS Galaxy, Mokoena was affected by the technical team changes which took place at the club after Owen da Gama was replaced by German coach Sead Ramovic in October.
The 28-year-old right-back has since been announced as a new signing for Sekhukhune United along with Justin Shonga and Evans Rusike in this transfer window.
Mokoena’s representative Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi of Rush Hour Sports Management has provided the details of the Koppies-born player’s move to the highly ambitious Babina Noko outfit.
“Let me take this opportunity to thank Sekhukhune United Football Club for giving Luckyboy Mokoena a chance to further his career with the team. The boy is excited and looking forward to serving the club with distinction after signing a six-month contract with an option to extend for two years,” confirmed Mulovhedzi.
“I would especially like to thank the club’s CEO Jonas Malatji for coming through on deciding in signing Luckboy after he parted ways with TS Galaxy. I must confirm that the player parted ways with TS Galaxy amicably after the club stated that they wanted to cut costs, otherwise the boy had been doing well there. There was interest in the player from other clubs in the DStv Premiership from Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, but Sekhukhune made the player an offer that would not have been easy to turn down and we were very happy with what was presented to us with regards to their project and future plans,” he added.
“Lastly, I should also thank fellow colleagues in Steve Kapeluschnik, who tried to assist us in getting a suitable deal for Lucky, as well as Alban Newman who works with Mike Makaab at Prosport International, in trying to assist to get the boy a club. I hope that in future I will do the same for them and their clients,” concluded Mulovhedzi.
