Sundowns coaches win third monthly PSL award, Chiefs’ Ngcobo gets best goal

Mamelodi Sundowns’ co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena have won the DStv Premiership coach of the month award for the third time in succession.

The coaching duo took the award for December after they led Sundowns to four wins, two draws and a defeat.

hey kicked off the month with a 1-1 draw against Stellenbosch FC, secured a comeback 3-2 win against Royal AM, beat SuperSport United 1-0, floored Baroka FC 2-1 before hammering rivals Orlando Pirates 4-1.

However, their winning run was halted after they suffered their first defeat of the season, 1-0 against AmaZulu, and they concluded the month with a 1-1 draw against Marumo Gallants.

This is the third successive award for Mngqithi and Mokwena so far in this season, the latest coming in the month of October/November after leading Sundowns to three wins and two draws in their five league games.

Four-time successive champions Downs are running away with the 2021-22 Premiership after they took a 14-point lead into the Christmas and Africa Cup of Nations break, just past the halfway stage.

Predictably, a Sundowns player — in-form midfielder Andile Jali — won player of the month.

On Jali, who is having a great season with the Brazilians, PSL said: “Congratulations to Sundowns midfielder Jali for the player award.”

And on the best goal for December, PSL tweeted: “Congratulations to Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Nkosingiphile Ngcobo for winning the goal of December.”

During the month of December, Sundowns featured in seven top-flight matches, winning four matches, drawing two, and losing one.

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Nkosingiphile Ngcobo won Premiership goal of the month. Ngcobo’s goal that has been voted the best, came in Amakhosi’s 2-0 win against Sekhukhune United at FNB Stadium on December 12.

Ngcobo unleashed a left-footed effort from outside the 18-yard areas that beat the visiting team’s goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata and set the Soweto-giants to the vital victory.
