Mokwena Hints At More Changes At Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena has hinted there will be more changes in the technical team in the coming weeks.

On Tuesday, FarPost broke the news that two technical team members were recently informed to leave camp in Limpopo and return back to Chloorkop.

Riedoh Berdien (strength and conditioning coach) and Marcus Mashilo (assistant goalkeeper coach) are now both awaiting their fate of either being redeployed into new roles are parting ways with the club.

Mokwena is expected to rope in new technical staff in their respective roles but stopped short of stating they were ‘expelled’.

“I would refrain from using the word [expel], I would say that it’s only normal in any football club that when a head coach is appointed that there are technical changes and it’s only normal,” Mokwena said.

“For sure, the club will make necessary announcements as we go but to use the word expel is a little bit extreme, but normal. Especially when it’s Rulani, we tend to be a bit extreme so I understand but it’s only normal.

“And there will be even more changes, for sure, because the club has given me an opportunity for which I’m extremely grateful for, they have given me the support that I am extremely grateful for. And my [role] is to reward them and repay that.

“Part of that is knowing I need a very strong team around me because I can not do it alone and that means, for sure, in the interim is to move in a direction that the club wants to move in because the club will always outlive me and be more important than me.

“Therefore, when in due course, the club will definitely make announcements as to what changes will be made to the technical team.”
