Why Mokwena’s Phone Is Buzzing…
Rulani Mokwena has made a very good name for himself in South African football as an assistant coach, but could that change as other clubs eye him as a potential head coach?
Mokwena, who is currently assistant to Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic at Orlando Pirates, has been part of the revolution happening with the Buccaneers after they managed to turn a club seemingly in decline into Absa Premiership title challengers.
The young coach also played a big role under Pitso Mosimane at Mamelodi Sundowns during his time there, and it may be that the time has come for him to take the step up into a head coaching role should the opportunity present itself.
According to Siya sources, a couple of Absa Premiership outfits are looking to Mokwena as a potential option going into the 2019/20 season should their current situation change, though it remains to be seen whether he would be willing to move on from Bucs or if circumstances would allow it.
The Siya crew has been informed that two top-flight teams have been in touch with the talented young coach to enquire about his availability, though at this point in time there is nothing more to report than that.
