Mokoena launches football academy
AFTER hanging up his soccer boots, former Bafana Bafana midfielder Teboho Mokoena is now ploughing back into the community of Ekurhuleni through his foundation and academy.
Mokoena formed the Teboho Mokoena Sport and Development foundation in February to help unearth talent in Ekurhuleni.
"When I decided to hang up my boots, the first thing that came to mind was to get involved in development on a bigger scale," he said. "I started by organising some of the youngsters with passion for the beautiful game in Thokoza, which is my home town.
"I have already recruited 33 boys from Thokoza, Katlehong, Palm Ridge, Vosloorus and Alberton who are now part of the academy."
