South African Football Journalist Awards tonight will be announcing the inaugural Men’s Footballer of the Season award. Mamelodi Sundowns trio Hlompho Kekana, Themba Zwane and newly signed striker Peter Shalulile are amongst the nominees.
Former Masandawana ladies team player Rhoda Mulaudzi scooped the Women’s footballer of the season award at the beginning of September.
The Chairman of SAFJA, Velile Mnyandu said that “To come up with an excellent player from the season is something that we do not take for granted. But also it’s an opportunity for us to acknowledge that we respect the talents who come through as rough diamonds from all different corners, not only in South Africa but also around the world. So for this award, we felt it has been a while since journalists were involved in coming up with the best player of the season”.
All the best to the Brazilians who are gunning for the award.
