Breaking: Rulani Returns To Sundowns

Rulani Mokwena is returning to Mamelodi Sundowns three years after he left to join Orlando Pirates, the Siya crew has been reliably informed.

The 33-year-old tactician spent the last three months at Chippa United, but walked away at the end of his contract on June 30.

Reports had also suggested he will not be returning to Orlando Pirates after he was seconded by the Buccaneers to Chippa pre-Covid.

However, a few days after he jokingly posted on his social media accounts that he was joining Gavin Hunt in the unemployment queue, the Siya crew can confirm that Mokwena will assume his previous role as Sundowns assistant coach.

He was never really replaced at Chloorkop, with head coach Pitso Mosimane opting to rather elevate goalkeeper coach Wendell Robinson to work even closer with him and Manqoba Mnqgithi, the other assistant coach.

Mokwena left Downs in 2017 to take up a similar role at Pirates following the arrival of Micho Sredojevic and together they finished runners up behind Sundowns for two seasons in a row and qualified for the CAF Champions League.

But Sredojevic quit abruptly in August last year and Mokwena was made interim coach at Pirates between then and November prior to the arrival of German mentor Josef Zinnbauer and the two, reportedly, did not see eye to eye.

It was then that Mokwena was “seconded” by the Buccaneers to Chippa three months ago, though he opted to not stay beyond the expiry of his contract on June 30.
