The man knows the history of football like the palm of his hand. He used to be one of the greatest supporters of the now-defunct Vaal Professionals before the club was relegated from top flight football. He believes that Manco Milano FC can restore professional football to this region even if they campaign in the Free State stream. “I appeal to all soccer-loving people in Sedibeng and Sasol to come in numbers when we play in the promotional play-offs because we want to see this team playing in ABC Motsepe League games in the new season. It is not a matter of a team being from Sebokeng, but we also represent Sasol because this is where we play our games. The Zamdela people have been good to us since we started playing in the area. These people really love football and even during the days of Vaal Professionals they used to come in big numbers to support the club,” says Mokoena.
Meanwhile, Mokoena says they will reveal more details later as to exactly where the play-offs will be taking place in Bloemfontein.
