Premier League

Mokwena hailed for his influence.

Kabelo Sibiya who is a former TS Sporting coach (playing in the GladAfrica Championship Championship) has expresed his gratitude to Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena, as he returns to the football scene. Kabelo Sibiya has been one of the most promising coaches in South African football and many have tipped him to become the next top coach in the Premier Soccer League as they believe he has what it takes to change the game.

Kabelo Sibiya has revealed that during his break from football he has been empowering himself through courses arranged by Rhulani Mokwena, who he sees as his mentor for the work he does.

"'I have been busy with a coaching course for about four weeks via Zoom with coaches from Spain through TNGS organised by the Rhulani Mokoena Foundation. He (Rhulani Mokwena) has been helpful and I really appreciate him," said Kabelo Sibiya.

The former Sporting mentor has won the ABC Motsepe League in three occasions with Buya Msuthu and qualified for the Nedbank round of 32 with three different teams. Last season he finished in 4th position in the Gladafrica Championship League with the Kabokweni based outfit side TS Sporting and has since joined Black Eagles, with aspirations to get promoted to the GladAfrica Championship.

"'I want to make sure this team moves to the GladAfrica Championship. We have a very ambitious owner." Said Kabelo Sibiya as he takes on the new venture of raising yet another team to the top ranks of football.

Kabelo may be praising Rhulani Mokwena, but Mokwena himself will tell you that he has learned a lot from his superior, coach Pitso Mosimane who continues to make the headlines in the African continent as a South African born coach. Knowledge passed on from one coach to another can be vital in helping upcoming coaches to also make it in the coaching department.
