Kaizer Chiefs mentor Ernst Middendorp has been named Premier Soccer League (PSL) Coach of the Month for November 2019.
As a result, the German tactician has become the first coach to win the accolade three times in a row.
The Soweto giants were dominant during the month of November recording three wins out of three matches, while keeping two clean sheets.
Their great form sees them placed at the top of the league standings - 10 points clear of their nearest rival, SuperSport United.
Middendorp is hoping to become the first coach to win a major trophy with Amakhosi since 2015.
Meanwhile, SuperSport starlet Sipho Mbule has been named PSL Player of the Month for November.
The attacking midfielder played an important role in helping Matsatsantsa record two wins and two draws during the month.
Mbule, who is a South Africa under-23 international, hit the back of the net twice in the process.
