Black Leopards Football Club midfielder Phathutshedzo Nange’s goal against rivals Baroka Football Club has won the Absa premiership goal of the month.
Nange was presented with the award in Polokwane on Monday. The league also announced that Nange’s goal is also a contender for Absa premiership goal of the season.
Nange’s goal was selected from a shortlist of 10 goals voted for by fans between September and October. Other contenders for goal of the month were Vincent Pule of Orlando Pirates and Vusimuzi Mngomezulu of Polokwane City Football Club.
Nange has expressed happiness at being given the recognition but he is still concerned that his side is at the bottom of the league log.
Black Leopards coach Dylan Kerr says he has cautioned his players to think carefully about their future as there are reports that some players are being targeted by top Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs.
Nange is being linked to a move to one of three PSL clubs. Kerr says a number of players have attracted an interest from big clubs.
