“Mamelodi Sundowns co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena celebrated their league triumph by adding another accolade in their bag as they scooped the DStv Premiership Coach of the Month for May.

The Brazilians’ new signing this season, Peter Shalulile, took home the DStv Premiership Player of the Month award also for May,” the PSL confirmed in a statement.

“In the period of May 2 to June 2, the Sundowns coaching duo guided their team to a remarkable five wins and one draw in six outings despite coming under pressure from the chasing AmaZulu FC in early May. Over and above collecting 16 points, the judges were hugely impressed by the duo’s game and squad management while battling both the domestic league and CAF Champions League competitions. Despite the psychological factor of travelling in the continent, they remained focused in defending their league title, winning it with three games to spare,” reads the league’s statement.
