Johannesburg-Former Bidvest Wits midfielder Xola ‘ten ten’ Mlambo feels Micho and Mokwena are the best coaching unit in the World.
Mlambo struggled to get game time under the guidance of Gavin Hunt, but things started to shape up at the Mayfair side as he now players regularly under Micho.
Mlambo feels delighted by his coaching department.
“They are the best of both worlds really,” Mlambo told Bucs’ website.
“Coach Micho is more like a father figure while Rhulani is the strict older brother. Coach Micho is humble and direct; he calls a spade a spade. When I arrived, he told me that even though I was not getting game-time, there was something they saw in me. He told me that I would be able to help the team and that obviously boosted my confidence immensely.
“Micho is always happy and is genuinely concerned with the well being of his players. He encourages us to tell him when we have personal problems so he can help us out, he is truly an amazing soul to be around.
“It’s no secret I knew Rhulani from way back, we have an ongoing relationship but he takes his work very seriously. He doesn’t take any nonsense from anybody. He is generally a nice guy with a strong work ethic, very professional. He is a coach, a motivator and a perfectionist. He will always push you to the edge because he demands the best of people and he always wants to see the players to be better and achieve more.”
