I’m Not Permanent – Mohafe

Polokwane City coach Phuti Mohafe has opened up about the coaching situation at the club saying he is not in the role permanently however is ready to step up but just waiting on the club’s management.

Mohafe has been in charge at Rise Shine following the departure of Lehlohonolo Seema who has since joined Sekhukhune United.

In City’s DStv Premiership match against Kaizer Chiefs this past weekend Brice Aka was named on the team sheet and was in the dugout with Mohafe as one of the coaches.

Though he claims readiness backed by young minds Mohafe contradicted himself by saying he believes he and Aka may need an experienced elder to come show them the ropes.

“I’m not [hired] on a permanent basis,” said Mohafe.

“Brice Aka is coming to assist the team as a coach and we are coaches who are working well together. We are co-coaches we are working together we are sharing responsibilities. We haven’t been told for how long and I think with the young minds that we are, we still need to have an elder or someone who has been more into this League or someone with more experience than us to come and guide us”

“I cannot say I’m not ready [to be a permanent coach] because there is no easy journey there is no difficult journey. So I cannot say I’m not ready. I’m ready it depends on the management on what to do”

“I’m almost there. I think I’m 95% there and I still need to be shown certain things about football, certain aspects of football that I don’t know about, certain aspects of football that I have to learn, certain aspects of football that I need to deal with before I can say I’m 110% ready”
