Cape Town - Orlando Pirates interim coach Rulani Mokwena is not thinking about how recent results will impact his chance of taking the hot seat permanently with the Buccaneers.

Mokwena has had a tough start to his head coaching stint after the sudden resignation of Milutin Sredojevic.

The Soweto giants have since been knocked out of two competitions under Mokwena - they have been eliminated from the MTN8 and CAF Champions League in the last two weeks.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns insisted he is only concerned with turning Pirates' fortunes around and not about job security.

Mokwena told reporters: "Not at all. I think that it's not about me. Every time I come out, I carry a different responsibility.

"Unfortunately, when you are put into a leadership position, you can’t be selfish, and you can't think about yourself.

"It would be extremely unwise for me to think about myself and getting this position.

"The chairman always says that the moment finds the man and the man doesn't find the moment."

The Buccaneers next face Golden Arrows in Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday evening.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
