Mamelodi Sundowns FC management are reportedly weighing up the future of head coach Rulani Mokwena.

Mokwena led Masandawana to a record-extending seventh consecutive league title. To add the cherry on the top, Mokwena’s side have hit a club-record 72 points this season, with two more games to go.

Sundowns also lifted the inaugural African Football League. They could lift a third trophy in the form of the Nedbank Cup when they face arch-rivals Orlando Pirates next month.

You’d think dominating in the league would be enough to keep the club’s hierarchy happy? Think again!

According to the latest reports, Mokwena faces a nervy wait over his future at the club. Take a look at why the club are considering letting their master tactician go below.

“Well-placed Siya sources have informed the crew that Mokwena’s future has come under the spotlight and that the club’s management are set to deeply assess the situation at the end of the 2023/24 season,” a Soccer Laduma report read.

“This publication understands that among the concerns from management is the style of play that Sundowns have adopted. It has left a faction of the club’s board unsatisfied as well as the 37-year-old’s recent spats in the media, of which there have been many in recent times.”

Rulani Mokwena makes ‘POTS’ predictions

There have been a number of top performers this season, but here’s who Rulani Mokwena believes were the cream of the crop.

“I honestly think, in my opinion, as I said even before, it’s Ronwen Williams, Lucas Ribeiro, Marcelo Allende and Teboho Mokoena,” Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena said, as quoted by IDiski Times.

“And then, there must be, you have to also commend the contribution of Patrick Maswanganyi and maybe Jayden Adams.

“But the reality is the level of Ronza (Williams), the level of Tebza (Mokoena), the level of Marcelo Allende, when he comes on today, you can see, and the level of Lucas Ribeiro, therefore for me they’ve been outstanding this season.”
