Cape Town - Chippa United midfielder Thamsanqa
Sangweni has suggested he failed at Orlando Pirates due to a breakdown
in his relationship with assistant coach Rulani Mokwena.

Sangweni initially made his name after a number of impressive
performances for the Chilli Boys from 2015 until 2017, and it won him a
move to the Sea Robbers ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
However, he made just three appearances in the Premiership and was sent back to Chippa at the end of that season.
The 29-year-old believes his relationship with Mokwena may have been to blame for the situation, although he holds no grudges.
Speaking to the Sowetan, the player said: "I had a disagreement with the assistant coach [Mokwena].
"I was confused. I do not know why we did not get along but I feel it
was not about football at all. This fallout somehow triggered my
departure from Pirates.
"We tried to sort out our differences [at that time]. I [even] went
to speak to the chairman [Irvin Khoza] about this problem. He understood
and told me to persevere and work harder.
"At the end of the day, parting ways was the best decision for both
parties. Though I was disappointed about this whole thing, I hold no
grudges against him."
