Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune dedicated his third successive man of the match award to the club's late goalkeeping coach, Alex Revoredo.
Khune played a starring role as Amakhosi recorded a 2-0 victory over Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday.
The result saw Chiefs move up to fourth in the Absa Premiership standings, while it was United's first league defeat.
The 30-year-old Khune told reporters he has added motivation as he recently recovered from illness and wants to play to honour Revoredo, who passed away unexpectedly recently.
The Bafana Bafana international told SuperSport, "I went to the hospital because of the chest infection. I was hungry for some action. I came back and for the past three games, I've been enjoying my football.
"Like we say, remembering Alex our fallen hero. He left us on this earth. We told ourselves, we are going to play for him for the rest of our lives.
"He's been a pillar of strength for the team. In the changing room, he's been the one leading the songs, so this third man of the match in a row belongs to him, the fans and the whole of the Kaizer Chiefs family and the players, who fought on the day."
