Coach Golola lauded the players for the commitment and thanked the league organizers for rewarding him.
“I thank the players for the efforts made so far. It is one thing to be a coach but another to have players that deliver results,” he said before adding, “Winning an individual award like this, my first at the club. It is the perfect time to appreciate my technical team who have worked so hard since the start of the season.
