Sundowns excited by Mokwena return

Mamelodi Sundowns have welcomed Rulani Mokwena back to the club following his release from Chippa United.

The former Downs assistant was most recently head coach of the Chilli Boys, on a short-term loan deal from Orlando Pirates.

But after being released by Chippa, he will now return to Downs, in an assistant capacity, once he has been cleared of the coronavirus.

A statement on the club's official website welcomed the talented coach.

"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 statement continued: "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."
