Does Mokoena really admit his Pompey career is over?
We know that every player has a price, we need to raise money and we also need to reduce the wage bill as there cannot be too many players that are on anything less than 'decent money' at Fratton Towers.
Some will go, because the club want them too, others will go because they want to, and Aaron Mokoena, for me, had pretty much fallen into the 'because the club want him to' bracket - although we have already said that keeping him is what we want to do if we can.
The News today is running an article that says 'Aaron Mokoena has admitted his Pompey career is over, he is quoted as saying: 'it was mixed feelings (after the FA Cup final) because we realised the fact that a lot players will be moving on.
'We have a fantastic fanbase in Portsmouth and the fact we have to move on and build another life elsewhere - coming to terms with that was the difficult part.
'The season was a rollercoaster for the club, but I will always take the positives out it.
'The players showed pride, we showed that we are pro footballers and the most important thing was that we did it for the fans because they kept us going, as did the manager.
'Next season, I would love to stay in England. There's been a few clubs show interest but I just didn't want to decide yet.
'I want to focus on this big event (World Cup) and then I'll decide after the tournament.'
Now, is it just me or is there nothing really concrete that substantiates the claims that he admits his Pompey career is without a doubt over?
I guess it depends on how the words are interpreted I guess, but I am not entirely sure that he is admitting he is definitely leaving Pompey this summer? Ok, it is likely that he will though...
