Mokwena Issues Emotional Goodbye To Masandawana
Rulani Mokwena Has A Message For Mamelodi Sundowns & Orlando Pirates Fans
Orlando Pirates' new coach, Rulani Mokwena, has posted an emotional message to Mamelodi Sundowns and their supporters.
It was confirmed yesterday that the highly rated coach had joined the Buccaneers as Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic's assistant, leaving behind Masandawana after a very successful spell at the club.
Now, as he prepares for a new chapter in his career, Mokwena has issued a message to those that he is leaving behind.
The message reads as follows:
“This was the hardest decision of my life... but one I had to make.
“Human beings who achieve greatness are driven by challenge. We have to face, without fear, the consequences of our decisions. There will be difficulties but our hard work and God will support us. My soul has insatiable thirst for success. I've learnt, I've loved, I've worked hard, I've served diligently and I've contributed with every piece of me.
“This club and the yellow nation will forever remain special to me. I appreciate the opportunity and am extremely grateful to the President, his board and the Head coach for believing in me and allowing me to contribute. Thank you to the yellow nation, I have and will always have a special bond with you. You are truly amazing FOOTBALL LOVERS.
“But now I need to try to ease the pain of this sleeping giant, wipe my late grandfather's tears and allow him to continue to Rest In Peace by responding to another call from a club that continues to live in him.”
