Former Orlando Pirates coach Rulani Mokwena has revealed that he had a number of offers to consider before taking the Chippa United job.
The 35-year-old tactician has been tasked with keeping the Chilli Boys in the Absa Premiership, and he is relishing the short-term challenge it has afforded him.
"I took my time and I made the right decision to come to Chippa [United]. There were other offers, but I was waiting for the right project, a short-term situation to try and help a team," Mokwena told reporters, as quoted by Goal.
Mokwena's first game in charge of Chippa on Saturday was a creditable goalless draw at Bidvest Wits.
Asked if he sees himself at at Chippa United next season, Mokwena added: "I'm not even thinking about the long-term. I want to focus on the short-term and for me, at this moment in time, is to assist the club to remain in the Absa Premiership. The other things we will see after the season."
Chippa are currently in 12th position in the Absa Premiership standings, only three points clear of the relegation zone with six games left to play.
Chippa next welcome Cape Town City in an Absa Premiership clash on March 20.
Kick-off is at 20:00.
