Rise and Shine has confirmed that Molekwa will continue to lead the team next season

Polokwane City ended their 2016/2017 Premier Soccer League campaign on a high, finishing in sixth place on the log.

Despite Rise and Shine’s impressive showing during the campaign, they had to contend with a period of uncertainty when Belgian tactician Luc Eymael walked out on the club and Bernard Molekwa was roped in as caretaker coach.

Although, Eymael would be forced to return to Polokwane after he was found guilty of breaching his contract, Molekwa continued to occupy the hot seat and did well during his stint.

With Eymael having successfully negotiated his release with the club this time around, City has given Molekwa an opportunity to prove his worth.

“When he took over from Luc‚ he did a wonderful job and we feel we need to give him the opportunity to prove himself at the top. Remember‚ he has been with the club for a very long time. He knows the culture of the team and the players‚” Tema concluded.
