Kaizer Chiefs defender Lorenzo Gordinho and Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larson were announced as the winners of the best player and coach of the month for August and September 2016 at a press conference held at the PSL head office. 

After impressive performances during this period by the centre-back, which included him scoring some crucial goals in the opening two months of the 2016/17 Absa Premiership campaign, Gordinho was also selected due to his consistent displays at the back for Amakhosi as well as his level of maturity having recently made a step up to regular football in the elite division.

Larsen, who guided Abafana Besthende to four wins during the two respective months, became the first coach to win the award in the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season, as he guided his side to top of the log standings by the start of October. The judging panel were impressed by the exciting display of his team in producing the good results.

During the August-September block of fixtures, Arrows collected 10 points as they registered away wins at Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic, a home victory over newboys Cape Town City, drew with SuperSport United, while they lost their opening game of the season away at Orlando Pirates. The club scored 7 goals during this period.

Larsen narrowly got the nod ahead of Bidvest Wits’ coach Gavin Hunt.
