On-form Absa Premiership log-leaders, Kaizer Chiefs have claimed the top honours in the Absa Premiership Quarter Q-Innovation Three (Q3).
This follows an impressive unbeaten spell for Amakhosi. Chiefs accumulated 18 points from eight games – with three draws and no loss.
This is the second time Chiefs claims the R1, 5 million prize money this season. Last year, Chiefs were crowned champions of Q1 with their coach Stuart Baxter winning the Coach of the Quarter and striker Bernard Parker being rewarded with a Player of the Quarter award.
PSL Acting CEO, Cambridge Mokanyane congratulated Chiefs for winning the R1, 5 million prize.
“Kaizer Chiefs have been playing great football lately and it is no surprise that they have emerged as the overall winners of Quarter Three. I would like to congratulate the Kaizer Chiefs chairman, Mr Kaizer Motaung, Chiefs management, coach Stuart Baxter, the club captain Itumeleng Khune and the Kaizer Chiefs players for this achievement. To win the Q-Innovation twice in one season is no small feat,” Mokanyane said.
“One of the biggest successes of the Q-Innovation concept is that it has placed significant value on every game,” he added.
The PSL Acting CEO will hand over the R1, 5 million cheque to Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday during their Absa Premiership fixture against Golden Arrows.
There will be an opportunity for flash interviews after the game with Kaizer Chiefs coach, Baxter.
