Pitso Mosimane, coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, has said that Hlompho Kekana should receive this year's PSL footballer of the season prize.

Kekana is currently the Sundowns captain.

He has been nominated for the award for the last four seasons, but has never clinched it.

Mosimane went on to say that it was a "pleasure" to watch Kekena play, and that he was "unbelievable". 

He also pointed out that whenever Kekana lost the award for midfielder of the season, he lost by only a handful of votes, according to Kickoff.com.

Kekana has had a decent 2018/2019 PSL season, with 2 goals and 1 assist. On top of playing for Sundowns, Kekana is also a member of the Bafana Bafana squad which take on Libya in their next Afcon qualifier. 

Additionally, Mosimane said that Thembinkosi Lorch was also another name to look out for in terms of potentially winning the award. Lorch is one of Orland Pirates' current stars.

Although Mosimane was rooting for Kekana, he said that Lorch had also earned the award. He said he would be pleased as long as either player made the cut.

"That’s it," Mosimane said, referring to Kekana and Lorch. "Those are the people.”
