Mokoena: Title race isn't done

Johannesburg - Former Bafana Bafana captain, Aaron Mokoena, has expressed his opinion on where he feels the direction of the PSL title race is going.

According to the soccerladuma website, the 33-year-old, who starred for the likes of Ajax Amsterdam, Germinal Beerschot, Genk, Portsmouth and Blackburn Rovers during his playing career in Europe, last spent time playing in the PSL for Wits in 2012/13.

The tough-tackling central defender has not ruled out a return to playing in South Africa's domestic top flight, however he has in earlier times revealed to the Siya crew he will only reach a decision at the end of the current campaign.

Nonetheless, the Boipatong-born star still retains a keen interest in this season's battle for the Absa Premiership crown, and he gave his view on what he thinks might happen as the league race reaches its final stretch.

'Mbazo' told the crew, "It's still a race! It's not done as yet. It's quite interesting the way it is at the moment. I think now it's a mental game. It's about who is going to crack more. This title race will go to the last day. Of course, it will be a bit difficult for Kaizer Chiefs at the moment - I mean they've dropped crucial points in the past few games. But, knowing Stuart Baxter as I do, he's going to prepare the boys as best as possible. Against Wits they looked a bit tired perhaps because of the games in Africa and what-not. For me, it's all about a test of mental strength now. This is why I'm saying, mate, this title race is not done."
