PRETORIA: The DSTV Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns dominated the virtual event with seven awards going to Chloorkop.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) honoured top performers for the 2022/23 season on Sunday, 28 May 2023. Expectedly, the DSTV Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns dominated the virtual event with seven awards going to Chloorkop.
Sundowns and Bafana Bafana midfielder Teboho Mokoena, who was a mainstay in the reigning champions’ line-up with 24 league appearances, walked away as the biggest winner. He scooped the Footballer of the Season and Midfielder of the Season.
The Goalkeeper of the Season went to Ronwen Williams, who kept 18 clean sheets in the league. His teammate, Khuliso Mudua, walked away with the DSTV Premiership Defender of the Season while revelation forward Cassius Mailula was awarded the DSTV Premiership Young Player of the Season.
For guiding Sundowns to an impressive league campaign, Rhulani Mokwena took home the DSTV Premiership coach of the season award, thus beating Gavin Hunt and Jose Riverio, SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates coaches respectively, for the accolade.
Orlando Pirates’ talisman Monnapule Saleng was recognised by his peers as he bagged the coveted Players’ Player of the Season award. The forward was instrumental for Pirates. He was involved in 19 goals this past season, more than any player. He scored 11 goals and contributed 8 assists. Saleng also won the MTN8 Last Man Standing Award for his heroics in the tournament.
