Sundowns’ Prodigal Son Returns

Former Mamelodi Sundown assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena, is expected to re-join the Chloorkop side in the same capacity, having parted ways with the Club back in 2017 to join arch rivals, Orlando Pirates.

Mokwena will travel to Rustenburg to join the Brazilians in camp as soon as he has received the results for his COVID-19 test. If everything goes according to plan, he will join the team by the end of this week. The experienced Mokwena spent more than 3 years with Sundowns before embarking on a journey to coach some of the most competitive sides in the PSL. He also took the time to capacitate himself by travelling to Europe to study at the current EPL Champions, Liverpool.

The President of Mamelodi Sundowns, Dr. Patrice Motsepe welcomed Mokwena back home to the Mamelodi Sundowns family as the Club looks to reinforce the Technical team as they continue to aspire to dominate in the CAF Champions League to earn the 2nd star for the Club and beyond. Mokwena will add a new dimension to our already accomplished technical team and will make a valuable contribution to Sundowns.

    We all have dreams in life you one of my dreams is to be the next best coach at Sundowns after Pitso but if my talent and knowledge of the game get recognised by another team I will still have that thing to want to make this brand shine and if that opportunity would want come once I am going to take it without thinking twice….So Bravo Sundowns for letting him persue his dream, and like his parents you never abandoned your kids so I am really proud of this decision.. I love you for a reason shem Sundowns you are the best…Mourhinho welcome back home I like you as a coach and you are to be reckoned with, never underestimate yourself, and it takes a man to make the decisions you made and I will forever respect you for that and hey Pitso taught you well your mind games are on top they even aggreviated some of our fans and they were not ready for you because they did not understand that you took that from their Head coach so hola member salute…
