This is the first time in a domestic Premiership season that three goalkeepers win individual monthly awards during the campaign. Hugo Marques, the former Cape Town City goalkeeper, was the last goalie to win the prize back in May 2022.

The judging panel for the DStv Premiership monthly awards consisting of commentators, analysts and journalists, selected Jose Riveiro of Orlando Pirates, SuperSport United’s Gavin Hunt, and Rhulani Mokwena of Mamelodi Sundowns as the winners of the DStv Premiership Coach of the Month, for August, September/October, and December/January respectively.

The three coaches dominated their fellow colleagues in the league, masterminding some incredible results with an impressive style of football and recording the less draws and defeats during the said months.

Meanwhile, details of the newly revamped DStv Premiership Goal of the Month award will be announced in due course.
