Cape Town - Orlando Pirates caretaker coach Rulani
Mokwena has revealed his loyalty to the Buccaneers, whether he is
appointed on a permanent basis or not.
The 32-year-old coach took over the coaching duties at the club after
Milutin Sredojevic quit abruptly last month, but is yet to be on the
winning side after six games in charge.
Speaking to the press during the club's media session on Wednesday,
Mokwena was hesitant to reveal too much, instead reiterating his loyalty
to the club, whether he is appointed as coach on a full-time basis or
“I think Pirates is a club that values certain principles," Mokwena responded when asked about his future at the club.
“I try not to speak about myself a lot because this position is like
being in an army and having to serve. You complain after, you ask
"I could have been at Bafana Bafana, but didn’t go. I had job offers
to go somewhere else to be a head coach, but I didn’t go – for Pirates.
"If you speak about loyalty and serving, then the actions themselves
should speak. It’s not for me to speak about looking over my shoulder.
"I am at Orlando Pirates until the club says I can no longer be here."
Pirates fans and Mokwena will hope to get their season back on track
when they host Chippa United in an Absa Premiership clash on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 15:00.
