Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns winger Lebohang Mokoena believes he will be forever indebted to Orlando Pirates for the role the club played in his career.

Mokoena recently left Sundowns when his contract expired after seven years at the club since joining from Orlando Pirates.

The 29-year-old made his professional breakthrough at the Buccaneers in 2003 as a 17-year-old prodigy.

Mokoena is now a free agent after Sundowns opted against extending his deal and has been linked with a move Kaizer Chiefs.

"People always tell me that they wish I could go back home [to Pirates]. If it was possible for me to take myself back I would you know," he told KickOff.

"I feel like I still owe them little bit of something, that I left very early. If only God could allow it

"I've really missed all the supporters. It's an amazing feeling that I get when I walk in the street from Pirates supporters, Chiefs supporters, even Sundowns supporters. It is overwhelming; it actually makes the heart melt."
