The 26-year-old attacking midfielder admits he still has a long way to go in terms of match fitness, but he is hoping for a quick comeback.

“I know my fitness levels and right now I’m nowhere near that, but I’m putting in extra training on my legs; sometimes before and after training, because I’m very determined to play for the team once again,” he said.

Mokoena added that the mood in the Sundowns camp is good after starting the 2013/2014 season with a bang, and he says he can’t wait to be part of the winning team.
