The PSL award ceremony will be taking place this month and there are a ton of awards to be handed out. This year's PSL Footballer of the year award decision is certainly going to be a tough one. There are four tough contenders all in the running for the award.
Themba Zwane of Mamelodi Sundowns, Peter Shalulile of Highlands Park, Samir Nurkovic of Kaizer Chiefs, and Gurston Sirino also representing Mamelodi Sundowns. All for players are worthy runner ups for the awards having proving their dedication to the game each time they entered the field.
Themba Zwane however, outshines the bunch as his name shows up in three different category nominations, namely; Footballer of the Season, Players Player of the season, as well as, Midfielder of the Season.
Meanwhile, Twitter users shared their thoughts on the Footballer of the Season nominees, here are some of the things they had to say.
"Let's all relax and be calm... No debates. Samir Nurkovic is the winner right?"
"Without a doubt Samir has take this one."
"Give Nurkovic this award already."
"Themba Zwane or Sirino...no doubt."
While @karabo_tjale had this to say:
"In all fairness, this award deserves to go to a team that won the league. What kind of footballer of the season can't inspire his team to any honours? You have nothing to show but you awarded as the best player in the league."
And in other Briefly.co.za soccer news, South African soccer manager Pitso Mosimane has asked God for help. Mosimane recently signed with the Egyptian team, Al Ahly. Now he shared an image of himself holding the CAF Champions League trophy with the caption: "Please God help me."
Judging from the caption and image, Mosimane is asking God to help him guide Al Ahly to win their ninth CAF Champions League title. The team is currently the most successful club in terms of CAF Champions League, having won eight titles so far.
Mosimane's tweet was met with love and positivity. Al Ahly's official Twitter responded to his tweet with: "Together we can do it." Tweeps have also responded to the 56-year-old's tweet with support.
