We are getting close to the end of the season and it is not clear who will win the league. It’s also not clear as to who will be player of the season. Let’s take a look at the contenders…
The Cape Town City skipper has been fantastic for the citizens. He has scored eleven goals so far and he is the league's joint top goalscorer. Manyama is surely the front runner for the accolade.
Pieterse has been amazing for SuperSport United. He has been very instrumental for their title chase this year and the shot stopper has conceded less goals than any other team in the league, besides Mamelodi Sundowns, who have played less. Add to the mix that United haven't lost a match in the league since he has been in goals, which is incredible.
The left footed player has been a star player for SuperSport United and he has been scoring and assisting goals in the league and in cup competitions for them. He’s surely one of the front runners for the prize.
The freshly called-up Bafana Bafana defender has been a top performer for Kaizer Chiefs this year. He is the club’s joint top goalscorer despite being a defender. The 22-year-old is definitely a contender for player of the year.
This is not a surprise contender for the prize, even though many still believe he needs to do more. But there is no doubt that Tau is a big talent and will be among the final three, even if it’s next season.
