JOHANNESBURG – Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and Orlando Pirates winger Thembinkosi Lorch received the Absa Premiership Coach and Player of the Month Awards for February.
The two received their gongs at the PSL’s offices in Parktown, Johannesburg, Tuesday. Mosimane got his award following his club’s impressive run of form, which saw them go atop the Absa Premiership standings at the end of February with eight points garnered.
The Bloemfontein-born Lorch was rewarded for his consistent form, during which he scored a crucial goal in the Soweto Derby and provided two assists in Pirates’ other matches during the month. His speed, creativity, brilliant pressing game and contribution in keeping Pirates in the title race, drove him to his first appearance in the winners’ podium.
They each receive R5,000 from Absa from league sponsors Absa Bank.
