Former Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena has now joined eight of his countrymen in unemployment after being released by Chippa United.

Chippa earlier this week parted ways with coach Mokwena before KickOff.com also confirmed that his contract with Orlando Pirates will not be extended beyond its expiry at the end of this month.

Mokwena has enjoyed a steady rise in South African football having started out as a youth coach at Silver Stars before moving to Mamelodi Sundowns youth, and then first team second assistant coach.

He joined Pirates in 2017 as an assistant to Milutin Sredojevic before taking over the helm on an interim basis in August last year.

However, after just four months in the job, the 33-year-old tactician was replaced by Josef Zinnbauer and subsequently demoted.

'Picasso' then went on a short-term loan to Chippa in March, but after just one game in charge the league was suspended due to the  Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2019/20 season is expected to resume in the next few weeks, but heads are almost sure to roll once the final log standings are decided, opening some doors for this list of high-profile PSL coaches.
