Rulani Mokwena Reveals Why He Sat on a Cooler Box During Kaizer Chiefs Game

Rulani Mokwena, coach of the Mamelodi Sundowns, has explained why he sat alone in a cooler box during the match with the Kaizer Chiefs. 


As a result of Saturday's 4-0 thrashing of Amakhosi at Loftus Stadium, the Brazilians have their first significant victory of the season. 


There were numerous topics of discussion after the game. 


While the game was going on, Mokwena was seen sitting on the cooler box and facing his players, having a conversation with them. 

Many fans wanted to know what their team's coach was saying to them on the bench, with some believing he was only addressing Siphelele Mkhulise. 


The coach addressed the media after the game and put a stop to the rumors about his decision to sit on the cooler box. 

The chair is hotter than the cooler box, he added, and the cooler has more ice. 


He said that he does get up and walk across the field to chat to his coaches, but that the cooler box is much more comfortable. 


Mokwena added that he communicated with the substitutes while facing away from the field of play. 


The head coach has argued that he has been unfairly chastised for over-coaching, despite his assertion that he enjoys coaching. 


He stated that he would rather face criticism for over-coaching than under-coaching. 


Mokwena added that he and co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi don't discuss who will be the team captain before games; instead, whoever steps up to the plate on any given day is the captain because they are both rowing in the same direction. 


He went on to say that the club's coaches are able to work well together because of their diverse skill sets and focus on the team's overall success. 


The Brazilians' fourth gameday is coming up, so expect to see them in action again soon.
