Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo has called on the powers that be at the club to keep faith with interim coach Rhulani Mokwena.

Mokwena hurriedly took over the Pirates hot seat after Milutin Sredojevic's sudden departure two months ago.

Things haven't gone exactly to plan for the young coach, who is in his first coaching job in the Absa Premiership. Of the seven games he has overseen in the South African top-flight, Bucs have only won once and drawn four times.

Nevertheless, Khuzwayo believes Mokwena needs more time to turn the club's fortunes around.

"Football is evolving in different sectors right now,” Khuzwayo is quoted as saying as per the Daily Sun.

"I just hope the club is going to be patient with him and give him enough time and support so that he can show what he is capable of."

The Buccaneers are currently 10 points behind rivals Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the league table, but Khuzwayo believes Mokwena has what it takes to succeed.

"Mokwena is a good coach and a very intelligent guy. I do believe that things will, at some point improve," Khuzwayo added.

Pirates next take on Stellenbosch FC on Saturday, October 26 in an Absa Premiership clash.
