Following negotiations between Mamelodi Sundowns and Head Coach, Rulani Mokwena, the Club is proud to announce that they have agreed on a 4-year contract extension that will see Coach Rulani remain at Chloorkop until 2027.
Coach Rulani, who was appointed as the Head Coach in October has had a very solid and impressive run which includes being undefeated in the CAF Champions League and DStv Premiership since he took over the reins.
Commenting about the contract extension, the Chairman of Mamelodi Sundowns, Tlhopie Motsepe, said: “We are excited that we have finalized the contract negotiations and look forward to more success and wonderful memories with the Yellow Nation, along with four more years of hard work and dedication from our Head Coach and the Technical Team.
“The Club strongly believes that the talented Coach will take Mamelodi Sundowns to the heights that it deserves to be; but the Chairman highlighted the important role that the supporters will play in the season ahead. “ With our supporters cheering us on throughout our big games- there’s every chance that Coach Rulani and his technical team will achieve our ambitious goals for the football club.”
Testament to Mamelodi Sundowns’ investment and belief in the youth – Academy players and its Coaching staff, is that Coach Rulani started his journey at Sundowns as a Youth Development Coach.
Reflecting on his contract extension, the visibly appreciative and driven Coach Rulani Mokwena said: “I think that there is still more to be done and achieved, because of those sentiments, I felt the need to put myself at service for this incredible institution once more – to assist in achieving more success and winning more trophies. The love and warmth I receive from the supporters fills me with pride. As a servant of this football club, tasked with a big responsibility of leading this institution and considering that there is many of the The Yellow Nation that serve the Football Club selflessly, in this moment where I feel the privilege, I thank the supporters for making me feel appreciated.”
The team will return for pre-season on the 28th of June 2023 to prepare for the upcoming season.
