Benni & Chiefs Star Amongst PSL Monthly Winners
AmaZulu’s Benni McCarthy has been named the DStv Premiership Coach of the Month for March/April, while his goalkeeper Veli Mothwa is the Player of the Month and Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic won the award for Goal of the Month.
It is McCarthy’s second successive coach of the month award after his superb 16-game unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership.
The announcement was made on Wednesday during a press conference by the Premier Soccer League.
McCarthy’s AmaZulu were unbeaten in eight games during this period, winning seven of these matches.
Mothwa, meanwhile, kept six clean sheets in those games, and has been rewarded with the monthly award for his excellent performances.
Nurkovic’s overhead kick goal against Orlando Pirates, in Chiefs’ 1-0 win in the Soweto derby, was picked as goal of the month.
