Rulani Mokwena Joins Wydad Casablanca: A New Chapter in North Africa



Former Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena has embarked on a new chapter in his coaching career, swiftly landing a role with Moroccan powerhouse Wydad Casablanca. Mokwena, who recently parted ways with Sundowns, is now set to take the helm at Wydad, a club with a rich history in African football.

Wydad Casablanca, boasting three CAF Champions League titles to their name, wasted no time in confirming Mokwena’s appointment through their official social media platforms. The announcement came shortly after Mokwena’s arrival in Morocco, signaling the start of what could be a transformative period for the North African giants.

Mokwena’s sudden departure from Mamelodi Sundowns, where he had been a prominent figure, raised eyebrows in the football world. Reports suggest a fallout with Sundowns’ technical director Flemming Berg may have precipitated Mokwena’s exit, despite the coach penning a four-year contract extension just over a year ago.

For Mokwena, the challenge at Wydad Casablanca is clear – to guide the club back to the prestigious CAF Champions League, a competition they are not set to feature in during the upcoming season. The task ahead will test Mokwena’s managerial acumen and strategic prowess as he aims to restore Wydad to continental prominence.

As Mokwena embarks on this exciting new journey, the football fraternity will be keenly observing his progress at Wydad Casablanca. With his experience and tactical nous, Mokwena could be the catalyst for a new era of success for the Moroccan giants as they look to reclaim their status among Africa’s elite clubs.
