"I'm very happy for Themba Zwane. He's been a critical part of our engine room throughout the 7 years of success, he's developed a lot of steel in his play to compliment his class on the ball. He has done it all in South Africa. Dankie Mthimbane."
"Congratulations Themba Zwane for being recognised as the most outstanding player of the 2019/20 season."
