Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic has been lauded for his work rate and quality for the Amakhosu during his first season in the Absa Premiership.
Nurkovic has been a livewire for Amakhosi and one of the instrumental players in the title-chasing campaign
The Serbian has netted 12 goals – 11 in the League and 1 in Telkom Knockout – in what is undoubtedly a successful first season for the attacker in Mzansi’s top flight.
The 27-year-old Serbian has impressed former Orlando Pirates striker James Mothibi, who rates him higher than fellow strikers Lazarous Kambole and Khama Billiat.
“For me, Kambole is one of the best strikers… Kambole and Khama Billiat are two of the best but Samir is the best. He is my friend (on social media) and we used to communicate on social media even before he came to Chiefs. He is quality!” said Mothibi.
