- Chippa United coach Rhulani Mokwena has sung the praises of his new boss Siviwe 'Chippa' Mpengesi
- Mokwena has worked under the best in the business and likened Mpengesi to them
- Chippa got off to a respectable start under Mokwena with a solid draw against Bidvest Wits
Former Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena has lavished praise on Chippa United chairman Siviwe Mpengesi.
Mokwena was recently appointed as head coach of the Chilli Boys and his tenure got off to an impressive start following the draw with Bidvest Wits.
Having worked as an assistant coach at Mamelodi Sundowns as well, Mokwena has worked under some titans of Mzansi football.
Although Mokwena has worked under the likes of Patrice Motsepe and Irvin Khoza, KickOFF.com reported that he reckons that Mpengesi is right up there in terms of leadership and vision.
Mokwena said, "I know a lot has been said about him, but really I am taken aback and pleasantly surprised by his human qualities, his work ethic, his humility, his passion."
Mokwena also stated that his ambition and leadership skills are on par with his previous bosses.
He added, "It's been good so far, I am really impressed."
The timing of Mokwena's appointment could just be perfect based on the upcoming schedule.
Chippa will face Cape Town City on March 20th, but that will be followed by an international break.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the relaxed schedule could afford Mokwena the time and opportunity to implement his methods on the players.
