Chippa United and Rhulani Mokwena will not be extending the coach's loan deal from Orlando Pirates.
Chilli Boys chief operating officer Lukhanyo Mzinzi has confirmed that the former Pirates assistant coach will not be in Port Elizabeth when the season resumes.
"The issue with Rhulani, we had a short contract and it is ending next week. We won't be extending," Mzinzi tells KickOff.com.
The Chippa official says the decision to allow Mokwena's deal to lapse has nothing to do with allgegations that the squad broke lockdown regulations by training at Kings Beach.
"It has nothing to do with what has been said. It was a decision based on the fact that the club can't commit on other things. You've seen what lockdown has done to other companies," Mzinzi adds.
"A decision will be made next week on who will replace the head coach but we are not planning to bring in anybody else from outside for now."
