MAMELODI Sundowns made a cleansweep at the Premier Soccer League (PSL) monthly awards.
Following an impressive start to te 2021-22 season where they won five and drew one out of six matches to top the table with 16 points.
Sundowns co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena have won the DStv Premiership Coach of the Month award for Agust and September and star striker Peter Shalulile walked away with the DStv Premiership Player of the Month award for the same months.
Shalulile, last season’s runner-up on the goal scoring charts, has been in red-hot form since the start of this campaign. He has scored five goals in the opening six league matches, contributing close to half the number of goals 11 scored by Sundowns in the league to date.
"The Namibian forward beat other great performing players such as Victor Letsoalo of Royal AM and team-mates Rivaldo Coetzee and Denis Onyango to the award," the PSL statement said.
The Sundowns coaching duo, Mnqgithi and Mokwena, who beat Royal AM’s John Maduka and SuperSport United’s Kaitano Tembo to the award, have overseen five wins, with one draw in their side’s opening six games, scoring 11 goals with their defence still to be breached.
Meanwhile, the DStv Premiership Goal of the Month for August/September went to Orlando Pirates’ Deon Hotto for his stunning free kick against Stellenbosch FC.
