Ajax Cape Town have signed Midfielder Lebohang “Cheese boy” Mokoena on a two-year contract, who left Mamelodi Sundowns as a free agent.
Mokoena, 29, told Ajax’s website: “This has given me a totally different view to football. Ajax Cape Town are very professional in everything that they do, on and off the field.
“I was so impressed with the way the coaching staff and management handle things, they really made me feel like part of the team.
“It’s really great to see the amount of young players who are given a chance to play at Ajax Cape Town and I’m happy to be part of it. I want to thank the coach and management of the club for giving me this opportunity.
“I am very excited to wear the Ajax Cape Town jersey and I’m ready to give my all for the club,” vowed the former Orlando Pirates winger.
The Urban Warriors has also confirmed the signing of midfielder Mark Mayambela who has also penned a two year contract with the club.
Mayambela and Mokoena have joined the Urban Warriors as free agents after a successful trial at Ikamva following their recent departures from SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively.
The 29-year-old parted ways with Sundowns at the end of last season after the Chloorkop-based outfit opted against extending his stay.
