Mamelodi Sundowns Coaching Conundrum: Unclear Hierarchy After Mokwena’s Exit

Mamelodi Sundowns find themselves in a confusing coaching situation following the departure of head coach Rulani Mokwena last week. While Steve Komphela‘s return as “Senior Coach” was announced, the club has yet to clarify the head coach position.

Manqoba Mngqithi Steps Up (For Now)

Manqoba Mngqithi, previously the co-coach alongside Mokwena, seems to have assumed the head coach role, at least on a temporary basis, according to agent,  Mike Makaab (during an interview on Gagasi FM). However, Makaab assures an official  clarification  from the club “in the coming weeks.”

Komphela’s Role Unclear

Adding to the confusion, Komphela’s return holds an ambiguous title of “Senior Coach.”  While Makaab emphasizes their strong working relationship and respect for each other, the exact hierarchy and division of duties remain unclear.

Contract Extension Pending

Further complicating the situation is the yet-to-be-announced contract extension for Mngqithi, which has reportedly been in negotiation for months.

Sundowns Fans Left in the Dark

Sundowns’ lack of clear communication has left fans with more questions than answers. Who is truly leading the team?  When will the official head coach position be confirmed?  And what does the future hold for Mngqithi’s contract extension?

The Brazilians will undoubtedly seek to clear the air soon, but for now, the coaching situation at Chloorkop remains shrouded in uncertainty.
