Chippa United head coach Rulani Mokwena is keeping his options open for next season as he considers the next step in his burgeoning career.

Mokwena remains under the employ of Orlando Pirates while filling the head coach position at the Chilli Boys, but he is yet to decide where he'll be working next season.

"It is up to the two clubs and my representatives. I think it is open but there are also other possibilities that are open. We will have to wait and see," the former Sundowns assistant coach said, as quoted by IOL.

Mokwena also revealed that he would be willing to step into an assistant coaching job again if the environment is conducive to further developing his skills.

"There were talks with other projects before I came to Chippa United and there are possibilities of that at the end of the season," Mokwena continued.

"That's football, you know. The reality is that we have to wait and see, especially if there are other appetising projects and it could even mean being an assistant coach again. There are possibilities of that. There are appetising and challenging projects here in the country and outside.

"It's just about growth and the right environment that's going to provide that opportunity for me. I'm open to that."
