TFA Interview: Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena – podcast
On this episode of the TFA Podcast, host Adam Scully is joined by one of the most exciting young head coaches in world football right now – Rulani Mokwena, who currently oversees South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns.
Coach Rulani speaks about his time with Sundowns so far, his trip to watch the UEFA Champions League final in Istanbul, the role of society in the ever-changing world of football, why he uses his goalkeeper so high up the pitch, playing with a diamond shape, why his team press invertedly rather than forcing the opposition outside, learning from other top managers across the globe including Fernando Diniz and Pep Guardiola, while also having a wider discussion about trusting the process and the future use of AI in football.
It’s a long one, but you’ll undoubtedly learn a lot from Rulani!
