The veteran administrator said that he wants a competitive
Ea Lla Koto in the new campaign and to do that his must keep their key players
including last season’s top goal scorer, Moeketsi Sekola.
Mokoena said they only player he has allowed to leave is
Daniel Cardoso as he wanted to be closer to his family in Johannesburg, but the
deal with Kaizer Chiefs is yet to be confirmed.
“Cardoso has given us the best of his services and has been
very respectful and we will allow him to go if the deal is right, but for now
nothing is final,” Mokoena told Sport24.
“The only player who has left is striker Camaldine Abraw
because his contract was expiring and turned us down for a new deal.”
The Ea Lla Koto chairman said he has personally had a
discussion with the 2014/15 top goal scorer, Sekola, and has told the striker
to remain at the club and work on becoming a better hitman because age is still
on his side.
“There is no doubt that he has been brilliant for us, but he
is still young and should focus on improving his game here at Stars,” said
Mokoena also revealed that the club will go to the market to
reinforce their squad in order to be better than last season.
