Former Orlando Pirates coach Rulani
Mokwena has revealed that he had a number of offers to consider before
taking the Chippa United job.
The 35-year-old tactician has been tasked with keeping the Chilli
Boys in the Absa Premiership, and he is relishing the short-term
challenge it has afforded him.
"I took my time and I made the right decision to come to Chippa
[United]. There were other offers, but I was waiting for the right
project, a short-term situation to try and help a team," Mokwena told
reporters, as quoted by Goal.
Mokwena's first game in charge of Chippa on Saturday was a creditable goalless draw at Bidvest Wits.
Asked if he sees himself at at Chippa United next season, Mokwena
added: "I'm not even thinking about the long-term. I want to focus on
the short-term and for me, at this moment in time, is to assist the club
to remain in the Absa Premiership. The other things we will see after the season."
Chippa are currently in 12th position in the Absa Premiership
standings, only three points clear of the relegation zone with six games
left to play.
Chippa next welcome Cape Town City in an Absa Premiership clash on March 20.
Kick-off is at 20:00.
