Pirates name Mokwena as assistant

The Buccaneers unveiled ‘Micho’ as their head coach last week and the Serbian has now assembled his back-room staff, with former Mamelodi Sundowns assistant Mokwena coming on as Pirates’ number-two.

"I thank the [Mamelodi Sundowns] president Mr Patrice Motsepe and the coach Pitso Mosimane for not only providing me with an opportunity; I thank them for the grace with which they accepted and supported my acceptance of the Orlando Pirates challenge,” Mokwena said on Bucs’ official website.

Pirates head coach Sredojevic added: "Rulani's approach to tasks is done in a commitment that is noteworthy. I am pleased that he accepted the challenge."
