Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane says Rhulani Mokwena brings great value to the club and his return is important.

Mokwena has reunited with Masandawana after three years coaching elsewhere.

The 35-year-old spent two and a half years at Orlando Pirates before being sent out on loan to Chippa United for the rest of his contract.

Chippa opted to part ways with Mokwena, which led to Sundowns offering him a new deal to coach at Chloorkop again.

"The return of coach Rhulani is important to the club; that's why we thank the club and the board for bringing Rhulani to the team," said Mosimane in an interview with YOU FM.

"We like Rhulani, we want Rhulani. He'd not be here if he wasn't bringing any value. This is not empowerment employment. This is a professional situation the way I also knew that Rhulani's return was possible and thank God it happened," he continued.

"He's not a new person. He's a person we all know. I can just say he was well accepted by the players and the technical team. Even the supporters have accepted him. So, all is good."
