Mosimane's advice for Mokwena


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has offered a word of advice to Rhulani Mokwena ahead of his second game in charge of Orlando Pirates.

Mokwena started his tenure on a poor note after losing 1-0 to Highlands Park in the MTN8 quarterfinals in Soweto this past weekend.

However, Mokwena has a chance to redeem himself and win the confidence of the Ghost when the Soweto giants take on AmaZulu in Durban tonight (19h30).

"Orlando Pirates will always be Orlando Pirates. It's a big team, it's a big club. They have the quality, they have the players, they have the game, they have the speed and they will always be there," said Mosimane.

"Rhulani must never worry. I have lost three games in a row. I know how it feels when you lose. Everyone starts to talk, everyone starts to write you off, everybody starts to find mistakes.

"You know there is talk. It's football, it does happen. I think he will calm down. I will talk to him if I have to but I don't want to interfere a lot."

Pirates have only collected three points since the start of the season and will look forward to bouncing back against Usuthu after losing 3-0 in their last league game against SuperSport United.
