Downs Coach Linked With Pirates Switch
Orlando Pirates Are Reportedly Chasing Mamelodi Sundowns' Rulani Mokwena
There could be another shock move across Gauteng this month with Mamelodi Sundowns’ assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena, being linked with Orlando Pirates.
South Africa’s football fraternity was left shocked yesterday when Irvin Khoza announced that Pirates’ captain, Oupa Manyisa, was making the move to Chloorkop ahead of the 2017/18 season and it is expected that there will be a couple of players moving the other way.
However, it doesn’t seem to be just Sundowns’ players that the Buccaneers are interested in, with Mokwena reportedly on their list of potential candidates to join as an assistant to Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.
The Serbian was announced as Pirates’ new head coach on Thursday and the club stated that he would be discussing the matter of his technical team with Irvin Khoza this week.
While there has been no confirmation from any of the involved parties regarding Mokwena, Pirates are believed to be interested as they look to try and turn around their fortunes after a disastrous 2016/17 campaign.
