Mamelodi Sundowns have announced the appointment of Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena as joint head coaches “with the opinion of Manqoba Mngqithi prevailing when there isn’t consensus”.
Mngqithi and Mokwena replace Pitso Mosimane who resigned on the 30th of September 2020 as head coach of the club to take up a job in Egypt.
In a statement released on Sunday, Sundowns President Dr Patrice Motsepe said: “Manqoba and Rhulani have been with Mamelodi Sundowns for many years and were part of the Technical Team that were crowned Champions of Africa in 2016 and have also won the Premier Soccer League and other titles in South Africa.
“The board of Mamelodi Sundowns was particularly keen to appoint South African coaches and express its commitment and confidence in the talent and ability of our local coaches.
“Manqoba, Rhulani and the Technical Team at Sundowns will focus on defending the PSL and the other titles that we won during our historic 50-year anniversary.
“They will also advance and continue with the objective that we stated in 2004, which is to make Mamelodi Sundowns one of the best clubs on the African Continent.”
