The pair are the last recipients of the individual monthly accolades for the recently concluded 2019/20 Absa Premiership season.
Riekerink, who has been named the Coach of the Month for the first since assuming the reigns at the Mother City-based club in November 2019, got the nod after guiding the Citizens to five wins out of their seven games in the bio-bubble since local football’s restart in August. In the process, City scored 10 goals and conceded five goals.
Erasmus, scored in the seven outings for the club, mostly match-winning goals in the process.
“Players such as Themba Zwane, Bradley Ralani and Ricardo Goss, were also mentioned for their great displays during the adjudication process but could not beat Erasmus’ incredible showing, who finished the season with 13 goals to his name,” read a PSL statement in explaining why Erasmus scooped the award.
