Middendorp scoops first 2019/20 PSL coach of the month award, thankful for staying in the job

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Ernst Middendorp has won the Absa Premiership coach of the month award for only the second time since his arrival in South Africa in 2005. Ironically it was also with Chiefs the last time he won this award during his first stint with Amakhosi back in 2005. A good run of 10 points from a possible 12 in the first four matches of the season and being one-point clear at the top of the log saw Middendorp walking home with this August accolade. Middendorp has thanked the club’s management, specifically Bobby Motaung and his younger brother Kaizer Junior for keeping him in the job despite underachieving last season.
