REVEALED: Player and coach of the month


Cape Town City duo of Kermit Erasmus and Jan Olde Riekerink have been announced as Absa Premiership player and coach of the month for August/September, respectively.

The pair are the last recipients of the individual monthly accolades for the recently concluded 2019/20 Absa Premiership season.

It is the first time Riekerink has been named the Coach of the Month since assuming the reigns at the Mother City-based club in November 2019.

Riekerink guided The Citizens to five wins out of their seven games in the bio-bubble since local football’s restart in August.

Erasmus on the other hand scored four goals in the seven outings for the club beating off competition from players such as Themba Zwane, Bradley Ralani and Ricardo Goss.

Meanwhile, Maritzburg United forward Thabiso Kutumela walked away with the Absa Premiership Goal of the Month award for the same period.

His stunning low drive from outside the 18-yard area in his club’s 2-2 draw against league champions Mamelodi Sundowns, earned him the nod.
