Mamelodi Sundowns Initiates Major Coaching Overhaul, Parts Ways with Rulani Mokwena Amid Performance Standards Debate

Mamelodi Sundowns made waves this week with the surprising departure of coach Rulani Mokwena, citing unmet performance targets from the previous season.

Former Sundowns striker Katlego Mashego emphasized the club’s history of moving forward without hesitation when it comes to top-tier coaches.

Reflecting on past transitions from icons like Pitso Mosimane and Hristo Stoichkov, Mashego expressed confidence that the club would seamlessly adapt once again.

Leaving Mamelodi Sundowns could be a fresh start for many players, including Brian Onyango, who may soon find a new home after his recent departure announcement.

Joining the champions in 2020, Onyango’s journey saw highs and lows, culminating in his exit alongside fellow players like Bongani Zungu and Thabiso Kutumela.

SuperSport United’s New Recruit

Brian Onyango has wasted no time in seeking opportunities elsewhere, starting training sessions with SuperSport United.

The move comes as SuperSport United repositions its defensive line-up, recently parting ways with Siyanda Xulu and Keegan Allan.

Meanwhile, Mosa Lebusa, a stalwart since his move to Sundowns in 2018, is in talks to extend his contract.

The club values his experience and contributions, aiming to secure his presence for another two years.

Junior Mendieta’s Transfer

Another notable move involves Junior Mendieta, who bid farewell to Sundowns after a productive stint.

The Argentine attacker, who arrived in South Africa in 2021, is set to join Greek club Volos FC for a reported R10 million.

His departure marks the end of a successful chapter with Sundowns, where he clinched prestigious titles including the African Football League championship.

This reshuffling at Mamelodi Sundowns underscores the club’s commitment to evolution and excellence, ensuring they remain a force to be reckoned with in South African football.
