It is the norm in football that when a team wins, the coach is praised but when results are against the team, the coach often gets the blame.
Two years ago, John Comitis appointed Benni McCarthy as the head coach of Cape Town City,and a few backed his decision.
Just after two seasons, he has clinched two titles, a feat most long-serving coaches have failed to do. At the age of 34, it is of course a very big and obviously challenging role for the young Rhulani Mokwena to be a head coach, especially for a big team like Pirates. However, who said it an impossible task to do?
I urge everyone to give the young man a chance, please. He has tried to prove that he can make big things for the mighty Buccaneers who are undergoing a trophy drought. Mokwena can be the answer, I still believe.
Support him, please. Once always.
