"For the club to return to where it is today took blood, sweat and tears from our leadership behind the scenes. We owe it to the fans and the management to get this club back to the Premier League."
While much has been written about the Dube Birds off the field of play, on the field the team has not had the best of starts to the season.
They are bottom of the standings after two losses and a draw. Pressure is already mounting on coach Zeca Marques considering the reported R25m that has already been spent by Panyaza Lesufi and David Mogashoa to get the club where it is.
Mokoena is also not happy with the start the team has had. "Obviously we have been going through a transitional phase as a team," he said.
"We are working hard to rectify our mistakes because we have not had the best start. We have been working hard on our synergy so I think we will come right."
Marques has the next two weeks to whip the players into shape, ahead of September 22 trip to Steenberg United at Athlone Stadium .
