Rhulani recap: How he stole the show


After two Soweto Derbies and two defeats Rhulani Mokwena stole most of the headlines, and the drama finally seems to be dying down.

Here we recap all the stories the Orlando Pirates coach made purely by his own statements in the media as the pressure mounted.

After a defeat on penalties in the Telkom Knockout, the 32-year-old used an unexpected metaphor in trying to say that Pirates played good football despite the result.

Having earned the nickname 'Picasso' after saying watching his Bucs side was like the famous artist admiring the Mona Lisa, he went on to raise the bar after the second Derby defeat in the league.

Pirates narrowly lost 3-2 and Mokwena attempted to deflect attention away from the result by launching a spectacular diatribe against Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp, whom he accused of encouraging "thuggish behaviour" from his players. 

In case you missed it, watch it below:

Mokwena will be hoping to turn Pirates' fortunes when domestic football resumes after the international break, with his side's next game at home against Polokwane City on November 26.
