Mamelodi Sundowns

‘Unusual For A Coach To Return A Club’

The return of Rulani Mokwena to Mamelodi Sundowns has been lauded by the club’s former player, who is pleased about the progress of the team under head coach Pitso Mosimane. 

After parting ways with Orlando Pirates following a stint at Chippa United, Mokwena returned to Sundowns to work alongside Mosimane and Manqoba Mnqgithi in the technical team.

Speaking to the Siya crew, ex-striker Sandile Ndlovu lauded the return of the young tactician, who left the Brazilians in 2017 to be an assistant coach to Milutin Sredojevic at Pirates.

“One thing we must understand is that the head coach, Pitso Mosimane, knows Rulani very well and he is the one who understands how he works. Rulani has been part of Pitso’s success, although we don’t know what his role was. By that I mean we were not with the team or in their training sessions or in their change room. It’s the players who know what each of the coaches’ roles are. All we know is that coach Manqoba (Mngqithi) is there, as well as Wendell (Robinson), and they are all part of the success,” said Ndlovu.

“But it’s unusual for a coach to return a club after he had left, especially at a big club. Pitso knows what is special about Rulani to him. Although I can’t be 100% certain about how Rulani’s return happened, I would think that it’s the coach that recommends who he wants to work with. I don’t think the President (Patrice Motsepe) just decided that he was bringing Rulani back. For me, it was a right decision for Rulani to go back to Sundowns,” he added.
