Rhulani Mokwena Admits To Stealing 

“It’s nothing new,” Mokwena states with humility. “I am just a thief. I steal ideas. I watch a lot of football.”

This candid admission reveals a coach who is unafraid to draw inspiration from various sources, both near and far.

In a post-match reflection, Mokwena dissected the game, emphasising the importance of versatility and adaptability.

“Last night you saw [Sofyan] Amrabat playing for Manchester United at left-back—you know what he was doing,” he explained.

“He was coming inside. The same thing with Thomas Partey at right-back coming inside. John Stones also comes inside.”

Rhulani Mokwena Being Called Pep Lite

Mokwena’s tactical acumen and ability to analyse the game in real-time have drawn comparisons to the likes of Manchester City’s head coach, Pep Guardiola.

Much like Guardiola, Mokwena is known for his chameleon-like tactics during matches, constantly adjusting his team’s approach to exploit the opponent’s weaknesses.

Record Breakers

The victory over Stellenbosch FC not only showcased Mokwena’s coaching prowess but also secured Mamelodi Sundowns’ position as the club with the longest unbeaten run in the league, boasting an impressive 32-game streak.

Rhulani Mokwena’s willingness to “steal” ideas and adapt them to his team’s advantage sets him apart as a forward-thinking and innovative coach.
