Having won the treble with Mamelodi Sundowns in 2021/22, you would think that coach Rulani Mokwena is somewhere enjoying his well-deserved holiday but that might just not be the case. Here's more!

The story

It appears that the young coach is not resting as a recent picture of him revealed that he is currently doing some work with his non-league side Black Poison FC.

With that said, many could agree that the manager is not only an over-achiever but a workaholic in many respects as well!

Real dedication

In October 2020, the Pretoria outfit announced that Mokwena and Manqoba Mngqithi would be the joint coaches of the club - a phenomenon that was less familiar at the time. The move would prove to be a very good one as the two leaders achieved instant success as they won the DStv Premiership Champions in their first season.

Fast forward to the present day, the coaching duo have won the Nedbank Cup, MTN8, and the league title in one season. With a proven managerial ability and success, Mokwena is increasingly becoming popular for his perhaps passionate press conference statements - which make him quite the character to lovers of the South African game.

Although he should be probably be busking in the sun reflecting on a glittering campaign, his work isn't done yet as he continues to admirably dedicate his time to a non-professional club very close to his heart

Your thoughts, please?

Having won all domestic titles with Masandawana, what would be the next step for Mokwena as a football managaer?
