Chippa United have opted against renewing the loan deal of coach Rhulani Mokwena.

The 35-year-old joined the Chilli Boys on loan from Orlando Pirates in March this year but only oversaw one match due to the coronavirus-enforced hiatus for all football in the country.

This now means that Mokwena will return to his parent club, Orlando Pirates.

Chippa COO Lukhanyo Mzizi has confirmed the club’s decision to take leave of Mokwena.

‘In the midst of uncertainty and in spite of everything including the announcement by the sports minister [Nathi Mthethwa], we as a club were uncertain as to when we will return to play,’ Mzizi told The Herald.

‘His [Mokwena’s] representatives kept enquiring to make sure they were certain about his future, we needed to let them know.

‘So, we let them know about our decision to allow the coach to return home to Orlando Pirates.’
