Mokoena to fight for place

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lebohang Mokoena has played down talk of him leaving the club despite his struggle for regular first-team action.

Mokoena has not been a regular feature in the Brazilians first team in the last due seasons, thanks mostly to persistent injuries preventing him from gaining any kind of consistency or form.

His place at the club became even more precarious after he was dropped to the Sundowns under-19 team to play in the Multichoice Diski Challenge.

However, Sundowns surprisingly activated a clause in his contract to extend his stay at the club until at least the end of next season, and the 28-year-old is confident he still has a role to play.

"I have also read that and what I can say is that I am still contracted to Sundowns until the end of 2016," he told Soccer Laduma.

"I really can't say I'm moving or I'm not moving. Time will only tell and I'll see what the future holds for me in the 2015/16 season.

"Obviously I will have to work hard. There will be new players coming in and the coach will give a chance to those who raise their hands to be counted in the team."
