AmaZulu’s duo scoops Dstv monthly awards

AmaZulu were the big winners in March/April with coach Benni McCarthy and goalkeeper Veli Mothwa winning the Dstv Premiership Coach and Player of the Month awards respectively.

McCarthy’s Usuthu began the month of March with a 1-0 victory over SuperSport United and went on to further triumph in six more games and played to a draw against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns – the only game they failed to score in out of eight outings.

During this period, AmaZulu scored an impressive 13 goals and conceded only twice.

This is the second award in successive months for McCarthy since he returned to the DStv Premiership late last year and is only the second coach to be honoured this season, with only Swallows FC coach Brandon Truter winning in October/November and December/January.

It has been the KwaZulu-Natal outfit’s incredible run of 16-games unbeaten that currently see them in second position, and the PSL’s panel of judges believe the former Bafana Bafana striker stood head and shoulders above his counterparts in the last two months.

“Benni McCarthy has been recognized for AmaZulu’s near-perfect Dstv Premiership record in March/April by claiming the DStv Premiership Coach of the Month,” read a statement from the League.

“McCarthy’s Usuthu began the month of March with a 1-0 victory over SuperSport United and went on to further triumph in six more games and played to a draw against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns – the only game they failed to score in out of eight outings.”

AmaZulu goalkeeper Veli Mothwa was also crowned Player of the Month for March/April after conceding only two goals and keeping six clean sheets in eight appearances.

Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic, meanwhile, was confirmed as the winner of the Goal of the Month award, as voted for by supporters on the PSL’s website.
