Following the appointment of Josef Zinnbauer as Orlando Pirates’ new head coach, questions have been asked what then happens to Rulani Mokwena who’s been in charge since the departure of Micho Sredojevic.
According to Pirates, Mokwena will continue as Interim Coach until Zinnbauer’s work permit is granted.
Mokwena will then return to his position as Assistant Coach alongside Fadlu Davids.
“It is important that we thank Rulani for the fearless manner in which he stepped up to the plate when the need arose,” says Pirates boss, Irvin Khoza.
“One of the important lessons leaders learn at the top is about themselves. They are called, “Knowing what I know now” lessons. I have no doubt that Rulani has learnt a lot of those for his betterment and that of the team”, Khoza concludes.
