Bucs Legend: Mokwena Can Learn At Pirates

Orlando Pirates legend and former captain Lucky “Phinda Mzala” Lekgwathi has told Soccer Laduma that current Bucs assistant coach Rulani Mokwena can still learn so much at Pirates under head coach Milutin Sredojević.

Mokwena has been in the headlines recently with media reports linking him with an exit from the Buccaneers and has been heavily linked to the head coaching role at SuperSport United.

However, the former Bucs skipper still believes that Mokwena still has much value to add to the Bucs squad and can still learn so much, which will help solidify his career as a coach. 

“That young man has done well for himself. He is wanted everywhere. He is one of the few emerging South African coaches who is doing well for himself,” Lekgwathi told the crew.

“He should be proud of what he has achieved in his young career. Both he and Milutin Sredojević along with the technical team have helped turn Pirates fortunes around. Before that, he came from a CAF Champions League winning Mamelodi Sundowns team, and now he has another opportunity to possibly do it over again with Pirates. He is still young and for me, I believe he can still learn a lot at Pirates. 

“He is definitely one for the future and the country will benefit. At the same time, I also understand that a head coaching position would be attractive to him because it will definitely be step up,” added the Bucs legend.

“It’s one of the decisions that are often faced with players and coaches. Whatever he decides there is no denying that he is a good coach and he can only grow to become better. He has been part of the coaching teams of two of the biggest clubs in the country so he understands pressure,” concluded the Lekgwathi.

The crew has reported that the highly sought after coach has been on the radar of several clubs including the likes of Chippa United, and SuperSport United which has cast uncertainty of his future with the Soweto giants.
