Rulani Confirms Chippa Exit – In His Own Words…

Rulani Mokwena has said his final farewell at Chippa United, where he spent the last three months following his secondment from Orlando Pirates in a Premier Soccer League first, as his contract officially ends today.

The Siya crew reported last week that the young tactician would no longer continue as head coach at the Port Elizabeth outfit, his agent setting the record straight that Mokwena and chairman Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi explored the idea of a relationship beyond the June 30 expiry date, but “could not find each other”.

Mokwena, 33, has on Tuesday announced his departure in his words and penned a brief statement on all his social media platforms.

It’s also been reported that Mokwena, who was interim coach at Pirates between August and November, would not be returning to the Buccaneers.

Here is the full statement below:

“After six months at the helm, It's with overwhelming emotion that I officially announce that I have successfully served my loan contract as coach of Chippa United and close a short yet extremely beneficial period of my coaching career. As we complete our contact, we depart with respect, dignity and appreciation knowing that we leave the club better than we found it.

I want to thank the chairman, his family and the management for the opportunity and support. The technical team for their support, patience, hard work and sacrifice. We spent lockdown together in Port Elizabeth, you risked your safety and sacrificed time away from your families just so you could put in the work which went beyond the ordinary 24 hours. You guys are incredible and it was a pleasure working with you. Thank you to the people of Port Elizabeth and the Chilli Boys supporters for the warm reception and your hospitality. You've got a great club that's got a lot more potential than you can imagine. Last but not least, my biggest thank you goes to the Chippa United players. Contrary to what the log says, there is incredible talent and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for each and every single one of you. Thank you for your hard work, humility and trust.

Wishing the club and all its people all the best in its future endeavours...The End.”
