Ladies and gentlemen, round six of Soccer Laduma Readers’ Player of the Season is now open. That means we – the Mamelodi Sundowns supporters – have the opportunity to vote for our players to win.
The story this week is simple: Katlego Mashego has been out injured since February. That was a long time ago considering that ‘Mahoota’ is still in the running for the award in the striker’s category of this wonderful initiative by Soccer Laduma.
Mashego is just three goals behind the league’s leading goal scorer at the moment, despite missing seven games in succession due to injury.
That shows the quality of the player and proves why he was in Gordon Igesund’s Bafana Bafana squad for the African Nations Championship (Chan) in South Africa earlier this year.
Imagine how many goals Mashego would have probably scored by now if it had not been for an injury. ‘Mahoota’ is currently on seven goals while Bernard Parker of Kaizer Chiefs is sitting at 10 at the top of the goal scorers charts.
Masandawana let us join our hands with the same mission here and vote for Mashego, he deserves it.
