Mamelodi Sundowns have announced changes to their technical team after the recent poor performances, with Rulani Mokwena becoming the sole head coach.
According to iDiski times, Masandawana got eliminated from the MTN8 by Orlando Pirates on the weekend, leading the club to some drastic changes on the sidelines.
“Mamelodi Sundowns announced today the restructuring of its Technical Team and the changes in the responsibilities and employment positions of its coaches: Manqoba Mngqithi, Rulani Mokwena and Steve Komphela,” the club said via a stamens.
“These changes were necessitated by the poor performances and unconvincing victories that the club has experienced for quite some time.
“Mamelodi Sundowns has a clear objective of becoming one of the most successful football clubs in Africa and its recent average and lacklustre performances are contrary to this objective.
“Rulani Mokwena will take over the responsibility of Head Coach at Mamelodi Sundowns, Steve Komphela will be promoted to become First Team Coach and Manqoba Mngqithi will be the Senior Coach which is the position previously occupied by Steve Komphela.
The Goalkeeper Coach, Wendell Robinson will stay in his current position.
“These changes are with immediate effect.”
