Mofokeng Reveals Riveiro’s Advice

Orlando Pirates teenage sensation Relebohile Mofokeng says coach Jose Riveiro deserves credit for helping him improve on his game especially this season.

Mofokeng was promoted from the side’s development ranks last season and has had South Africa mesmerised. This season, he helped Pirates to a domestic cup double and also earned his first senior national team call-up.

The 19-year-old Sharpeville-born talent told reporters after his Nedbank Cup heroics in an interview carried in edition 157 of IDiski Times, how the Spaniard has individual sessions with him and has showed him where his game was lacking.

“He always comes to me and talks to me and advises me on what to do and what not to do,” said Mofokeng.

“To mark because I can’t only play when we are attacking. So he advises me to mark as well because that’s the only thing that’s missing from my game. He has helped me lot because he does have a lot of individual sessions with me to help me grow and improve.”
