Rulani Mokwena has had an eventful PSL season and is working with his third different side within the same campaign.
Mokwena worked as an assistant coach at Orlando Pirates, but was thrust into the limelight when former Bucs coach Micho Sredojevic suddenly quit the club.
The young mentor was then forced to serve as head coach at one of the biggest clubs in the land.

Mokwena did reasonably well for someone so inexperienced, but failed to meet the high expectations of the Bucs faithful.
Josef Zinnbauer was soon brought in and Mokwena relinquished his assistant role for a chance to work as head coach at Chippa United.
Incredibly, after only one match, owner Siv Mpengesi decided to pull the trigger appointed Lehlohonolo Seema, Briefly.co.za reported.

This prompted Mokwena to rejoin Sundowns and work with Mosimane for the second time in his career.
A thrilled Mosimane said, He is now a better person and a better coach, he has learnt a lot, 3 years down the line, he has seen things and coached as a head coach. We are receiving an improved Rulani.
Mosimane feels that Mokwena’s expertise will help Sundowns achieve their lofty objectives.
He added, Sundowns has big ambitions. The fight and battle is too big, thats why we felt it was important to get him back to help us with this battle.
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Mokwena is loving the use of technology during the nationwide lockdown.
Mokwena says its heartening to see how even the old school coaches have warmed up to using social media and other forms of tech.
The former Orlando Pirates coach has always relied on this to stay abreast of new and current trends.
