Mokwena has looked to welcome all nine players by emphasising the philosophical ideologies that have been implemented by the coaching staff.
‘You are a footballer for 90 minutes. The rest of the time you are a human being. We are going beyond football and what happens on the pitch here. We are focused on developing good human beings,’ Mokwena said on the club’s official Twitter account.
‘Don’t think less of yourself, think less about yourself. We do whatever it takes for this badge, we serve this badge,’ added Mokwena on the club’s website.
