Percy Tau secured a double-header of honours at the PSL Awards in Sandton on Tuesday night. The Mamelodi Sundowns player won both the Footballer of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year accolades
Maritzburg United’s Siphesihle Ndlovu also won two awards, from the four he was nominated for. He walked away with the honour of being the Midfielder of the Season and The Best Young Player of the Season. Not a bad way to get over his side’s Nedbank Cup final defeat earlier this month, hey?
Elsewhere, Sundowns’ coach Pitso Mosimane scooped the Coach of the Season prize, whereas Kaizer Chiefs stopper Itumeleng Khune won the Goalkeeper of the Season gong.
There was perhaps a shock in the Goal of the Season award. The much-fancied Hlompho Kekana saw his strike from the halfway line vs Orlando Pirates lose out to Golden Arrows’ Siphelele Magubane and his curler against Polokwane City.
