Cape Town - Bongani Zungu claims that assistant coach Rhulani Mokwena is the real boss at Orlando Pirates after footage showed him dismissing head coach Milutin Sredojevic on the side-line, on Tuesday.

As it happened: Polokwane City 1-2 Orlando Pirates

Moments after Justin Shonga gave the Buccaneers a two goal advantage in an eventual 2-1 win against Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium, TV footage captured Mokwena dismissing Sredojevic as Pirates looked to make an immediate substitution.

The Former Mamelodi Sundowns attacker, who worked under Mokwena during their time together at the club claimed that his former mentor was the actual man in charge at the Soweto giants.

Zungu tweeted: "Coach Rhulani has made Pirates a top team again! @coach_rulani you the boss."

The 26-year-old Amiens attacker went on to further claim that Mokwena was the actual person behind Mamelodi Sundowns' recent success - when winning a coveted treble - instead of head coach Pitso Mosimane.
