Pitso Makes Bold Rulani Claim, Rulani Responds
Pitso Mosimane has made the bold claim that Rulani Mokwena will one day be a better coach than him, promoting a response from his former assistant.
‘Jingles’, who is currently in a contract stalemate with his club Al Ahly, as reported by iDiski Times on Monday, worked with Mokwena during his spell at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The duo have since met on opposite ends, when Al Ahly faced Masandawana in the CAF Champions League but seemingly remained very fond of each other.
After Mokwena revealed last week how much he learned from his former mentor – on and off the pitch, Mosimane now took to social media to insist that he still stands by an earlier statement to iDiski Times senior writer that Mokwena will be a better coach than him.
“You asked me what prompted me to promote Rulani Mokwena from our U-19 Sundowns team, I told you that I saw huge potential in him and that he is going to be better than me. I still stand to that statement,” Mosimane wrote on social media, quote-tweeting an iDiski Times story where Mokwena had explained what he learned from his former mentor.
Mokwena, who is also very active on social media, responded to the praise, saying he will be forever grateful to his former head coach.
“I could never my coach… Even if I lived 500 lives and each life span gave me an opportunity to get closer to your level, your hard work, drive and relentless focus have made you leap years ahead of your generation. I’ll forever be grateful for the opportunity you gave me,” Mokwena said.
