Kaizer Chiefs speedy winger Mandla Masango has been officially named the Absa Premiership Player of the month, by the Premier Soccer League.
In a media conference held at the Kaizer Chiefs head-quarters in Naturena, Johannesburg, the 25-year-old winger was awarded the Player of the Month award, along with his coach Stuart Baxter, who was named the Coach of the Month.
Masango has been instrumental in Kaizer Chiefs' opening five league fixtures, where they have bagged maximum points - and he has knocked in three goals for the Amakhosi.
Last season Masango was in danger of being loaned to other PSL clubs, with the likes of Ajax Cape Town and Moroka Swallows showing a keen interest in the winger, however it appears as though the faith showed by the Chiefs mentor to retain him is paying off.
Masango will look to carry on from where he left off, before joining the national squad for the 2015 CAF Afcon qualifiers. Chiefs play the University of Pretoria on Saturday at the FNB Stadium, with the match starting at 15:00
