Orlando Pirates assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena is yet to make his return to the club, although it seems that he may be shifting his focus to his long-term future.
As reported in last week's edition of Soccer Laduma, Mokwena is believed to still be in the United Kingdom for educational purposes, although is expected to return to the Bucs at some point.
While he still has a contract with Pirates until the end of the season and is expected to honour it, Siya sources have revealed that the young tactician may be facing his attention in to continuing his growth as a coach, but rather a head coach than an assistant.
However, in the interim, he is set to return to training with Pirates, although head coach Jozef Zinnbauer was asked yesterday whether he is satisfied with the set-up of his technical team, given Mokwena’s absence at the time.
“We have a good staff and we are working very hard. “There is a new coach now and it is new work – we have a good feeling and they are taking all the information and I also get what I want. It’s good for me, and it’s not a question of needing more. We are happy about his,” he told the media.
Now, it remains to be seen when Mokwena will make his return to the Bucs and if he will continue serving as a number two, after Fadlu Davids has assumed the responsibility of Zinnbauer’s right hand man.
