- Former Orlando Pirates head coach Rhulani Mokwena sent Bucs supporters lots of love via social media
- Mokwena received a mixed reaction as some fans lauded the former mentor
- Other supporters shared some harsh words and offered stern advice
Football fans are tough to please at the best of times, especially as head coach at a top club.
Former Orlando Pirates head coach Rhulani Mokwena was reminded of this even though he vacated the hot seat a while ago.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on the interest that new coach Josef Zinnbauer has attracted since taking charge.
An Orlando Pirates supporter forum praised Mokwena via Twitter recently and he in turn responded with a heartfelt message for the fans:
"The deepest feelings reflect the density of our love ... I'm humbled by the love and support that I receive from the Buccaneers, although I don’t deem myself worthy."
The beautiful message was well received by many fans, but Briefly.co.za noted that it also sparked some irate responses.

"You're loved and will always have our support as you're one of us before being a coach, we appreciate you coach Rulani "Mlungisi" Mokwena."

"Once and always, hold your head up high coach, your real time is coming."
Sulumane (@Sphe_Luyanda) showed some tough love:
"Man up and stop sulking. It's not looking good on the bench. Football has its up's and down's, professionalism at all times is key."
