AmaZulu defender cum midfielder Tsweu Mokoro has been honoured for the committed performance displayed in the last month with a motivation in the form of a R2000 cheque as well as a weekend stay for two at Suncoast and Hotel Towers.
This monthly award was previously won by Carlington Nyadombo and Bukasa Kasonga who are both defenders. The former Ajax Cape Town and Supersport United player told AmaZulufc.net that this shows the improvement in Usuthu’s rear guard.
“This is for the team though because all 11 of us work together and it’s not a one man show. I want to thank God for giving me the power not to get any injuries throughout the tough matches we had,” said Mokoro.
Chippa also attributes his sterling performance to the trust bestowed upon him by the technical team but says he will spend the money with his teammates over a braai.
AmaZulu started their second round with a 1-0 home loss against Mamelodi Sundowns and suffered a 2-1 away loss at the hands of Free State Stars away.
The 30 year old Sasolburg born man is confident that the recent away win that saw striker Ayanda Dlamini, break his duck in the 1-0 away win over Supersport United is a sign of more good things to come.
“I think it’s going to be an even tougher month ahead now, looking at the tough games we will play. To our advantage we have a big squad that can withstand the heat when injuries creep in because we now must set our sights on getting more and more wins,” he added.
AmaZulu welcome Ajax Cape Town at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in their first Nedbank Cup match on 11 March, Sunday. The match kicks off at 15h00.
In the league the KZN side takes on struggling Jomo Cosmos on 14 March 2012, Wednesday at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, and on 17 March they travel to the Dobsonville Stadium to face Moroka Swallows.
