Any doubt that Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena will be at the club has been squashed, as he confirmed the club will be making an announcement soon on a contract extension. 

The DStv Premiership winner and coach of the season nominee has attracted interest from various parts of the continent, but he confidently stated he will be at Chloorkop next season.

His current contract is due to expire at the end of June and the club is expected to make an official announcement on the length of the new contract they have been negotiating. 

Mokwena took charge of the team before the FIFA World Cup last year and has done a tremendous job, leading the club to a Premiership title with seven matches to spare. They have the best attack and defence in the league this season. Sundowns reached the semi-finals of two different knockout competitions this season, and the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup.

Speaking to media at an event held by club sponsors Hyundai on Friday afternoon, Mokwena expressed the love he has for Sundowns and that he will definitely be in the hot seat next season. 

"The club will make an announcement. I can tell you that I will be here next season, and the club will make an announcement. I love this club and I am falling in love with it every single day. I feel loved, I get incredible support from the football club, I get incredible support from the chairman, the Motsepe family, the board. With the players, there's a very good relationship. What more can a coach ask for?"
