Agent Gives Mngqithi Update After Rulani Exit

Manqoba Mngqithi’s agent Mike Makaab has confirmed that they are in talks with Mamelodi Sundowns over a new deal, but he won’t be the new head coach of Masandawana.

Mngqithi is currently leading the training after Mokwena was sacked earlier in the week, but the long-term assistant still hasn’t signed a new deal himself yet.

Makaab has now given some clarity on the situation of his client, but insisted he will get into a different position – neither as head coach nor assistant.

“It’s a different position that I can’t discuss, it’s not an assistant, but not a head coach, it’s something pretty different but on the coaching side, which I think is unique in South African football but not unique to European football,” said Makaab on Extra Time on Gagasi FM.

Makaab also revealed that a new deal is only a few days away, admitting that Mokwena’s departure would’ve slowed the decision-making at Chloorkop down quite substantially.

“I am confident that during the course of this week we will finalise a deal for Manqoba,” he added.

“The majority of the terms of the agreement have been agreed and it obviously it was difficult for us, probably more difficult for Mamelodi Sundowns to bring it to finality because we didn’t know what was happening behind the scenes, and Mamelodi Sundowns obviously knew that these discussions were on-going with coach Rulani.

“I guess that’s why there has been this delay, I am hoping that, now that the dust is starting to settle, cause it’s a big change, we’ll finally put pen to paper and put all of this speculation aside.”
