Masandawana dominates the PSL awards nomination lists

The Premier Soccer League has announced the nominees for the 2019/20 season awards and after a treble-winning season, it comes as no shock to see the Brazilians dominating the categories.

Denis Onyango is nominated for the Goalkeeper of the Season award. The Ugandan international has had a stellar season for Masandawana, he is up against Ronwen Williams and Daniel Akpeyi.

Motjeka Madisha has been on the rise since being promoted to the first team, he has repaid the club for the faith shown in him by putting in top-class performances. These have seen him nominated for the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament and Defender of the Season. He is up against Daniel Cardoso and Rushine De Reuck.

Themba Zwane has had a season not to be forgotten, the Bafana international reached double figures in the number of goals he has scored. This is the first time in his footballing career. He has already bagged the SAFJA Men’s Footballer of the Season. The Thembisa born player has been nominated for Midfielder of the Season, Footballer of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season.

Hlompho Kekana was nominated for two awards, Midfielder of the Season and the Telkom Knockout Player of the Tournament.

Gaston Sirino also got two nominations, one is for the Footballer of the Season and for his great performance in the Telkom Knockout as one of the best players, he is against teammate Hlompho Kekana and Judas Moseamedi.

Academy graduate Keletso Makgalwa has been nominated for the Nedbank Most Promising Player award. The Mokopane born striker scored crucial goals in the tournament, he found the net against Highlands Park in the last eight minutes and in the semi-final against Bidvest Wits.

All the best to the Brazilians nominated for the PSL awards!

    Sometimes I do not understand why people who won nothing and have nothing to show for the season end up winning. That kills players and end up thinking they have done everything yet not, players who have no consistency, hot for one season and flat the next. Some factors should be considered here. Last Season we saw Thembinkosi Lorch winning,the following season he was nowhere to be seen, l thought these awards are motivators to do more but alas! If a player is denied a move and can still play do it for the good of your name.That is professional football. But to be unhappy and fail to perform to expectations will only make your name shrink, if you are a hot asset remain hot because if you allow coldness its very difficult to pickup, remember another person will be rising to replace you. There are players who have been in the list of awards year in year out(Bro Hlompho), Consistency,there is no fluke in this, that shows he loves the game and always think outside himself in football.Those are the players who deserve legendary status when they retire. Themba Zwane , their names appear all the time, that shows the player is in the game and is pushing himself to the limit.Thumbs up. Consistency!. Madisha the young boy, he gives it all, be it locally or international, he gives his best, mistakes can be there but the boy means business. He has thwarted serious moves in the Caf and local, we saw the boy get man of the Match awards many times even on his low days. Keep the fight boy.we don’t want one season performance. We can talk and talk but consistency is ultimate. Make your name and protect it up there.
