Mamelodi Sundowns have appointed Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena as joint Head Coaches…
“… with the opinion of Manqoba
Mngqithi prevailing when there isn’t consensus.”
The President of Mamelodi Sundowns, Patrice Motsepe said: “Manqoba and Rulani have been with Mamelodi Sundowns for many years and
were part of the Technical Team that were crowned Champions of Africa in 2016
and have also won the Premier Soccer League and other titles in South Africa.
“The board of Mamelodi Sundowns was particularly keen to appoint South African
coaches and express its commitment and confidence in the talent and ability of
our local coaches. Manqoba, Rulani and the Technical Team at Sundowns will
focus on defending the PSL and the other titles that we won during our historic
“They will also advance and continue with the objective that we started in 2004, which is to make Mamelodi Sundowns one of the best clubs on the African Continent.”
Mamelodi Sundowns will in due course make other important announcements.
Mngqithi and Mokwena replace Pitso Mosimane, who resigned this week to take up the head coach position at Al Ahly.
