Rhulani Mokwena is set to return back home to Orlando Pirates from Chippa United. The Eastern Cape based club says that they have relieved Rhulani Mokoena off his duties due to uncertainty of the 2019/20 season as the country’s battling against Corona virus.
Rhulani left Orlando Pirates to the Eastern Cape to help Chilli boys after the departure of Norman Mapeza. That also coincided with the arrival of German coach Josef Zinnbauer. It looks like Chippa United will wrap up the season without a head coach after allowing the man they brought in to help them till the end of the season was relieved of his duties before time. Chippa United blames the uncertainty of the season as the main reason behind their decision citing that the club was not sure as to when the season would resume. “ In the midst of uncertainty and in spite of everything, including the announcement by the Sports Minister, we as a club were uncertain, as to when we will return to play”, Lukhanyo Mzizi told the Herald.
Mzizi added that Rhulani Mokoena’s representatives wanted a definite answer from Chippa United to be certain about the coach’s future moving forward. Chippa United then felt it was a right decision to let Mokoena return to Pirates.
