Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena has been in charge for a few months, but it's quite clear that he is prepared to give players an opportunity as he rotates the squad.
Mokwena was confirmed as head coach in October and his first match in charge was against Maritzburg United, hammering the KZN outfit 5-0 in a match which saw the likes of Haashim Domingo, Thapelo Morena, Mosa Lebusa and Sphelele Mkhulise getting opportunities in the team.

Surprise Ralani, Mothobi Mvala and Lebohang Maboe came off the bench in that match, as the coach's tenure as the main man on the bench kicked off in fine style.
He has been in charge of nine matches and, since then, has used almost the entire squad of players on one or more occasion, showing just how much depth they have at Chloorkop.
