Mamelodi Sundowns have officially confirmed the return of a former assistant coach.
The Siya crew broke the news earlier today that Rulani Mokwena is expected to rejoin Sundowns after suggestions that he would not be returning to Orlando Pirates.
Mokwena spent the past three months at the helm of Chippa United, though his stay came quickly to an end on June 30.
It has since been confirmed that Mokwena has now returned to Sundowns in the same capacity he was in before he parted ways with the Brazilians in 2017.
“Former Mamelodi Sundown assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena, is expected to re-join the Chloorkop side in the same capacity, having parted ways with the Club back in 2017 to join arch rivals, Orlando Pirates,” Sundowns said on their official website.
“Mokwena will travel to Rustenburg to join the Brazilians in camp as soon as he has received the results for his COVID-19 test. If everything goes according to plan, he will join the team by the end of this week. The experienced Mokwena spent more than 3 years with Sundowns before embarking on a journey to coach some of the most competitive sides in the PSL. He also took the time to capacitate himself by travelling to Europe to study at the current EPL Champions, Liverpool.”
“The President of Mamelodi Sundowns, Dr. Patrice Motsepe welcomed Mokwena back home to the Mamelodi Sundowns family as the Club looks to reinforce the Technical team as they continue to aspire to dominate in the CAF Champions League to earn the 2nd star for the Club and beyond. Mokwena will add a new dimension to our already accomplished technical team and will make a valuable contribution to Sundowns,” the club added.
