Cape Town - Orlando Pirates assistant coach Rulani Mokwena has confirmed he was in the United Kingdom spending time with Liverpool on an educational trip.

There was said to be some initial confusion about Mokwena's whereabouts after KickOff website contacted administrative officer Floyd Mbele, who was unsure of the coach's itinerary.

However, it was cleared up when the young mentor told the publication he had informed club boss Dr Irvin Khoza of his plan to be abroad.

He said: "I had spoken to the chairman about my trip, but it was just a short visit and I will be leaving tonight (Tuesday) and heading back to South Africa."

The Sea Robbers players were handed a short break during the FIFA international window after playing three matches in seven days against AmaZulu (3-1 win in Telkom Knockout quarter-final), Polokwane City (2-1 victory in the Premiership) and Mamelodi Sundowns (0-0 draw in the league).

The side's next assignment after the international break is to face Kaizer Chiefs in a TelKom Knockout semi-final on Saturday, November 24 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
