Breaking: Pirates Announce Mokwena As Assistant Coach!
Mamelodi Sundowns Assistant Coach Has Joined Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates have confirmed that the club have captured the services of the-now former Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach, Rhulani Mokwena!
The Siya crew reported earlier today that Head Coach Pitso Mosimane’s right-hand man, Mokwena, was still absent from training with the Brazilians, fueling rumours of a possible exit from the Chloorkop-based club.
Mokwena did not travel with the Masandawana first-team on preseason camp in Rustenburg last week, although sources revealed that the reason for his absence was because the assistant coach was reportedly suffering with the flu at the time.
It was then subsequently revealed on the Soccer Laduma website last week that Pirates were keen on bringing the assistant coach to their camp, this following the appointment of Milutin “Micho” Sredajovic at the helm.
Now, the Soweto giants have since confirmed the appointment of Mokwena as Micho’s assistant coach for the new 2017/18 campaign.
