Onyango Listed As PSL Awards Nominees For 2020/21 Season Revealed

Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango is among the nominees at the coming 2020/21 DStv Premier Soccer League.

Onyango has been nominated with two others for the award of the Best goalkeeper after his tremendous performance in PSL.

Sifiso Mlungwana (Golden Arrows) and Veli Mothwa (AmaZulu) are the other nominees but Onyango looks the favourite having kept 15 clean sheets at the moment.

On Wednesday, he helped Sundowns win this season’s League title, his fifth with the club and eighth overall for the former Cranes captain.

Last season’s PSL Best Goalkeeper went to Ronwen Williams (SuperSport United) but Onyango will fancy his chances this time to reclaim an accolade he won in 2015/16 season.

Thabiso Kutumela (Maritzburg United), Peter Shalulile (Mamelodi Sundowns) and Themba Zwane (Mamelodi Sundowns) will battle for the 2020/21 PSL Footballer of the Season and the DStv Premiership Player’s Player of the Season awards.

Voting for the PSL Footballer of the Season is done by Premier Division coaches while the DStv Premiership Player’s Player of the Season category is voted for by the players in the Premier Division. All the other categories were voted for by panels comprising of journalists and football commentators.

The awarding ceremony will be held on Sunday, June 6 2021.
