Rulani Pens Emotional Farewell Letter

Former Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena has penned an emotional farewell letter after the club sacked him on Wednesday.

Mokwena, 37, first joined Masandawana as assistant coach under Pitso Mosimane in 2011. He had a brief stint with Orlando Pirates and an even briefer with Chippa United in 2020 before returning to Chloorkop.

After initially working as assistant under Mosimane again, he then took over as co-coach alongside Manqoba Mngqithi when Mosimane left for Al Ahly in 2020.

But after a shake-up in October 2022, Mokwena was named sole head coach and had lifted three trophies, including back-to-back league titles, since.

However, he was now himself fallen victim of another shake-up at the club, as Sundowns parted ways with him despite handing him a new four-year deal last season.

Mokwena has now poured his heart out in an emotional farewell message to his former players, the club’s leadership and the fans – “Good bye is not good bye if you stay in the hearts of those who love you. Thank you Mamelodi Sundowns.”
