This is also the club of Bafana Bafana midfield star, Bongani Zungu. So, a few doubters have pointed out that Mokwena is just visiting Zungu.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns player has an excellent relationship with Mokwena. Nevertheless, the Pirates assistant proves that he visited Amiens to learn from their coaching setup. Below, he posted a photograph of himself talking to head coach Christophe Pelissie.
Mokwena also posted a video of himself arriving at the club. One can view the Tweets and the reaction from South African soccer fans.
LEARNING IS NOT ATTAINED BY CHANCE, IT MUST BE SOUGHT FOR WITH ARDOR AND ATTENDED TO WITH DILIGENCE... GREAT MEETING THE HEAD COACH OF AMIENS FC CHRISTOPHE PELISSIE. pic.twitter.com/R1F3nrAb1j— Rulani Mokwena (@coach_rulani) May 22, 2019
This off season we learn from Amiens FC. Different coach. Different philosophy. Different football culture. ✍🏾🧐 pic.twitter.com/yqQWlBP4kY— Rulani Mokwena (@coach_rulani) May 22, 2019
He has started from the bottom too. Climbed the ladders— Sébastien (@SebC__) May 22, 2019
True. Told me about his history. He’s done well in the last 10 years that he’s been coaching.— Rulani Mokwena (@coach_rulani) May 22, 2019

The more you learn the more you realise the need to learn - keep at it brother coach, you are already an inspiration so stopping would be irresponsible of you!— Masemola (@Masemol58556914) May 22, 2019
You just visited Bongani Zungu, there's nothing you learning there. Your attachment to Zungu is getting suspicious bro🤔— Makebeta (@tellambrose) May 23, 2019
