Rhulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi announced as Sundowns joint head coaches

Following the bombshell departure of Pitso Mosimane, Masandawana have announced the appointment of Rhulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi as joint head coaches of the storied PSL club. 

Mngqithi’s decision will prevail over Mokwena’s in the event of a disagreement between the two, said the club’s media relase. 

Mamelodi Sundowns Preisdent Dr. Patrice Motsepe said the following: 

“Manqoba and Rhulani 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, Rhulani and the Technical Team at Sundowns will focus on defending the PSL and the other titles that we won during our historic 50-year anniversary. They will also advance and continue with the objective that we stated in 2004, which is to make Mamelodi Sundowns one of the best clubs on the African Continent.”

Sundowns won the league last season in dramatic fashion after Kaizer Cheifs lost on the final day.
